Art Contest Rules | Entry Form

All student art work, whether or not they are chosen as the division winners, will be displayed throughout the championship grounds beginning Wednesday, July 11 – Sunday, July 15. All youth 18 and under are admitted free into the championship so this is a great way for them to see their artwork on display at an Inaugural Championship.

Art will be judged in two divisions: Grades 3-5 and Grades 6-8

  • The winner of the 3-5 division will have their art work displayed on the front of all 700 volunteer notebooks handed out during the championship.
  • The winner of the 6–8 division will have their art work printed as a poster and sold in the merchandise pavilion through the week of the championship (all proceeds will go directly back into CUSD 200). The winner of this division will also be invited out to the championship on either Saturday or Sunday to sign their posters alongside a Senior Women’s Open player.
