"Your student, Tyler, won for the Elementary School division for the Youth Art Month poster flag contest. You should be very proud of him and yourself! Your student will win $100 worth of art supplies and yourself $300 worth of art supplies from Sargent Art." ~ Youth Art Month Coordinator, IAEA
I was hoping I could find a way to exhibit it when I learned that the theme for this year's Youth Art Month flag and poster was going to be "Building Community through Art". I thought the image fit the theme and submitted a digital version to the contest.
Only 4 pieces in all of Illinois will be featured on the YAM Poster/Flag design. The Illinois Art Education Association chose Tyler's as the winner from the elementary division. There is a middle school winner, high school winner, and a grand prize winner as well. As part of Tyler's award, he will be given $100 worth of art supplies. Congratulations Tyler for such an amazing piece of art. I'm so glad others will get a chance to enjoy it too.
