Kids’ art needed to celebrate city anniversary (Deadline extended)
Posted on 10/21/2014

Cottonwood Heights is seeking talented youth to create drawings that could be used to celebrate the city’s 10th anniversary.

Children are invited to create drawings (without words) that describe or represent the city. Winning drawings will be reproduced on banners to be displayed on light poles throughout the city during January 2015 honoring the city’s tenth anniversary.

Entries will be judged by a city selection committee on the basis of compliance with contest rules and theme, artistic merit, and utility for reproduction on the banners. The selection committee will choose up to four drawings from elementary school-aged applicants (5-12); up to six drawings from middle school-aged applicants (12-15); and up to six drawings from high school-aged applicants (15-18).

Prizes will be awarded to the winners on 16 January 2015 at the opening of the city’s birthday celebration at Butler Middle School. All entries will be displayed that night and the following day at the Cottonwood Heights Recreation Center.

Entries will be accepted between November 22 and December 11, 2014.

NOTE: The original deadline of Dec. 1 has been extended one week.

The city will use the artwork on the banners, in the city’s newsletter and other publications, as well as the city’s website.

The contest is open to all school children aged 5-18 residing or attending school in Cottonwood Heights. The artwork must describe or represent Cottonwood Heights, past or present.
