WYLAND NATIONAL ART CHALLENGE

TAKE PART IN THE 2022 WYLAND NATIONAL ART AND CLASSROOM MURAL CHALLENGE, OCT. 1 - DEC. 1!

THREE AREAS TO WIN:

Images of your artwork are submitted for judging, not the actual artwork. Images can be uploaded beginning October 1st. The theme of the Art Challenge is environmental and water conservation. Teachers are invited to encourage their students to highlight conservation and participate in all three categories: classroom mural, individual art, and photography.

1. Classroom Mural: Work together as a class to create a 4-foot by 8-foot (or larger) mural. Three classrooms will win $250 for art supplies.

2. Individual Art: Individual pieces of art, in any medium, supporting the theme of the class mural. One 11th or 12th-grade winner will win a $500 scholarship. Additional winners from each grade level will receive a $50 gift card for art supplies. (mural participation not required for individual art entries)

3. Individual Photography: Capture a moment of nature. One 11th or 12th-grade winner will win a $250 scholarship. An additional winner will win a $50 gift card.

Every year, between Oct. 1- Dec. 1, the Wyland National Art Challenge encourages thousands of students across the nation to think about the many conservation issues we face around the world and interpret them through art.

Students can choose to work collaboratively on mural projects or create individual works of art and earn a chance to win classroom prizes and scholarships. It is our hope that the process of interpreting their relationship to the natural world through art will lead students to a greater understanding of their role as future caretakers of our water resources.

In further support of the program, the Wyland Foundation and its partners have provided more than 500 schools with paint supplies, educational materials, and 50 square foot artist canvases. Winning entries are included each year in a full-color calendar presented by Toro Irrigation.
