Each year, NIE asks students to illustrate a national or local theme. With 2016 being a presidential election year, this year’s theme is “Why I love the USA”
Artwork for this contest should be on plain, white paper measuring 8½ by 11 inches. Art may be in any medium except pencil (pencil is not strong enough to reproduce well in the newspaper — markers reproduce best). Art entries should be in color.
Each entry must have a completed copy of the form above with uploaded artwork.
Drawings will be judged by members of Standard-Examiner Design and NIE departments. They will select a first and second place winner in each of
K – 1st Grade
2nd – 3rd Grade
4th – 6th Grade
Cash prizes will be awarded:
First Place $20
Second Place $15
The artwork judged best by Standard-Examiner Designers and NIE will be published Monday, March 21, 2016 in the NIE Design-An-Ad section. Deadline for entries in the Drawing Contest is Saturday, February 20, 2016. Entries received after this date will not be accepted. Entries become the property of the Standard-Examiner and will not be returned.
