Deadline Friday For Youth Art Contest
 
Grande Prairie students have until Friday for their chance to win an iPad and other great prizes in the Municipal Government Day Youth Art Contest.

Students are encouraged to use various forms of art to depict this year’s Municipal Government Day theme – 99 Years and Counting.

The contest is open to students in three categories: Up to Grade 3, Grades 4-9 and Grades 10-12. The theme reflects Grande Prairie’s Centennial celebrations being a year away.
 
Submissions can be based on the City’s history or futuristic in nature – looking ahead 100 years.
 
“Grande Prairie is a younger Canadian community and has an interesting history, but it’s also growing and vibrant so students can choose to depict the theme either way,” says David Olinger, Manager of Marketing and Communications.
 
The City has partnered with the Centre for Creative Arts, the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie and local school boards on the contest.
 
The rules for each age category are as follows:
 
Up to Grade 3
 
Students can enter an original drawing in pencil or wax crayon, markers or pastels.
 
Single page drawings can be dropped off at the reception desk on the Third Floor at City Hall, the Centre for Creative Arts or the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie.
