Students in kindergarten through 12th grade in Fayette, Nicholas, Raleigh and Summers counties can celebrate their creativity through the 2013 Youth Arts in the Parks Contest.
The youth art contest and April art exhibition at Tamarack allows students to serve as community leaders and raise awareness of Appalachia’s natural diversity and parks, according to a news release from the National Park Service.
The Parks Service said the works will inspire community connections to local ecology and outdoor stewardship. Student participants in this art program also will explore the business of art and its role in economic development.
Students may use a variety of mediums to create a work of art inspired by a spring Appalachian wildflower native to the New River Gorge area of West Virginia. Contest information, guidelines, a list of accepted wildflower species and entry form are available online at: www.nps.gov/neri/youth-arts-in-the-parks.htm or www.tamarackwv.com/gallery/youthartsintheparks.aspx.
Contest art entries must be received at your county’s art receiving site between Feb. 4 and 15, 2013; see contest guidelines for receiving site locations. Top entries will be showcased at Tamarack in Beckley in April and online.
