When I was in middle school, I eagerly awaited the Helen Mears art contest every year. My 8th grade entry “Death of a Technicolor World” featured a ringed planet, a checkerboard dissolving into a giant hourglass and a headless dog. I did not win.
During the first two weeks of March, 2010, we will be hosting student entries from the Kewaskum School District. The Helen Mears Art Contest is sponsored by the Kewaskum Junior Women’s Club. This year they will offer a prize for a piece of artwork that is given the “Community Choice Award.” You will be able to come in and vote on which artwork you like best! The winner will receive a family membership to the always-inspirational Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend.
