Hillsboro announces student art competition
Young artists in Hillsboro have the opportunity to create artwork that could adorn reusable tote bags to be distributed at the Hidden Creek Community Center.
Hillsboro's Cultural Arts Division recently announced a competition for students in grades 7-12 as it prepares to create tote bags to be distributed when the city's new community center opens in 2021.
"Contestants are encouraged to submit black and white, line-drawn artwork that conveys the theme 'Stronger Together,'" the city said in announcing the competition.
Artwork must be original and be suitable for coloring, the city said, adding that submissions may contain words.
The print size for the selected design will be 7 inches wide by 8 inches high.
The artist's name, title of the artwork and Hillsboro's Parks and Recreation logo will be included in the final print.
Any student within the specified age range who lives in Hillsboro or attends a Hillsboro School District school can participate.
One winning design will be selected to receive $100 and their artwork featured on this year's tote bags. Two runner-up submissions will receive $25 cash prizes.
The deadline for submissions is Feb. 4, 2021. The winning artist will be notified by Feb. 19. The selection of the winning design will be publicly announced by Feb. 23, the city said.
All entries must be submitted using an online entry form.
