Contest: $100 for School Art Supplies

I've decided it's time to stop complaining about the state of funding for art education supplies in schools and do something about it, even if it's only a nit on an elephant.  So here's the deal ...

I will donate $100 for school supplies for the best 37-word story by a student related to this image ... it can be shorter but absolutely no more than 37 words.  Put your story in the comment section below with your name, school, city and state.  The winning student will receive a signed copy of the image printed on metal.  And, if the winner is a student artist, I will post one of your pieces of artwork on this blog.

Deadline, 12:00 a.m., November 21st Pacific Time.  Check the blog post on November 23rd to find out the winner and make arrangements to receive your art supply donation.

Please pass this along to all teachers you know so they can have their students enter. (Limited to high school and below, please.)  If we have fun with this, I'll do it on a monthly basis.  And, if anyone wants to add to the pot, please let me know.

BLOGGERS:  Join the fun ... post something about this contest and pledge $25 or more to your local school for art supplies and you'll be listed below as a Blogger Sponsor.  Leave a comment with your blog URL, school, city and pledge.  I can assure you, your local school will be delighted with your small donation.  You'll also be part of the judging team.

Businesses & Philanthropists:  You can play, too.  Donate $100 for art supplies to one of your local schools and you'll be listed below as an Art Patron.  Just leave a comment with your name, donation amount and school of choice.

  1. If you post this to FB, I'll be sure to share it. I'll look forward to reading the stories that come in. Imagine if many people at once could do something like this!

  2. Maureen ... I have posted it to FB ... probably easiest to find on "Imagine Joy Art" by Joyce Wycoff

  3. By Jack Sanders. Coarsegold, CA. Minarets High School.

    Upon the winding leaves of time the majestic caterpillar gnaws away on scrumptious fragments of delicacy-- eras of time enriched with such utter brilliance as to nourish the caterpillar for eternity, to one day become a butterfly.

  4. All I can say is WOW!

    And I wish I was a student!

  5. Way to go, Jack! Not surprised to see Minarets being the first in the pool.
