OAR is thrilled to kick off our fourth annual Youth Art Contest. This year’s theme is growth, encouraging young artists to explore and express their perspectives on personal and community growth.
How to Participate
Participation is open to any autistic child or their siblings, classmates, or friends who are inspired to create. Here’s how to get involved:
- Create your masterpiece: Let your imagination soar and create an artwork that reflects growth. Whether it’s a painting, drawing, or a mixed-media creation, we want to see what growth means to you.
- Submit your entry: Head over to the Youth Art Contest webpage for details on how to submit your artwork. The deadline for submissions is 11:59 EST on February 29, 2024.
- Spread the word: Share your participation on social media and encourage your friends, family, and community to join in the celebration of creativity and growth.
In addition to having their artwork featured on OAR’s website, winners will receive exciting prizes, including an Amazon gift card, certificates of recognition, and a spotlight on our social media channels.
Autism is a spectrum, and so is growth. This year’s theme invites participants to explore the various dimensions of growth, not only in the context of autism but also in their personal journeys. We believe that art has the power to inspire, educate, and foster a greater understanding of the world around us.
