Official Details

Habitat Greensboro is pleased to announce our inaugural 2020 Youth Art Contest, which is open to children from preschool through grade 12 of Habitat Homeowners. To be eligible, artwork must relate in some way to the question: “what does home mean to you?”

DEADLINE EXTENDED – Submissions due by 5:00 pm, Friday, October 30.

Artwork

  • Students’ artwork must be original. Computer-generated images and traced images will not be judged. It is critical that submitted artwork be original and not be found on the Internet, in print media, or elsewhere. To avoid copyright infringement, works thought to be copied will be disqualified.
  • Artwork can be done in crayon, ink, acrylics, oil paint, pastels, watercolor, colored pencils, color marker, chalk, pastels, charcoal, or paper collage.
  • No lettering, words, signatures, or any other markings may appear on the front of the artwork. This includes labeling items, writing one’s name, or a signature. Lettering that is creatively incorporated into the art (such as a posted sign) is allowed. Submissions that include prohibited writing will not be judged.
  • All artwork becomes the property of Habitat Greensboro. Submission of the artwork grants Habitat Greensboro a non-exclusive, irrevocable, royalty-free license to print or digitally publish your child’s artwork —including artwork print sales—in furtherance of Habitat Greensboro’s mission. All published artwork will be credited with a copyright notice in the following form: “© Artist’s Name.”
