DC State Fair 2012 - Kids' Art Contest

Thank you for your interest in the Kids' Art Contest! Read the contest guidelines and fill out the entry form below to enter the competition.

DC State Fair is proud to host the 2012 Kids Art Contest in partnership with Kid Power DC (www.kidpowerdc.org).

All kids who live in the city of Washington DC and are entering kindergarten through 9th grade are eligible to enter. The artwork should include dried beans and found objects. (No need to buy any special art supplies!)

So pick up a bag of black-eyed peas and a used penny–or any other beans and found objects–and start creating.


<b>2012 Kids Art Contest Guidelines</b>

Theme: “My Neighborhood”

Art must include found objects (for example, coins or a twist tie) and dried beans (for example, black-eyed peas or kidney beans) to qualify. Feel free to use any additional materials you would like.

Art can be 2 or 3 dimensional.

Contest winners will be judged on:

Creativity (30%)
Originality (30%)
Relevance to theme: “My Neighborhood” (30%)
Use of found objects and Legumes (10%)

DC State Fair will be held on Saturday, September 22, at Barracks Row Day near Eastern Market metro. The drop-off and judging schedule is available on www.dcstatefair.org/event-details. Drop-off: 11 to 11:30. Judging: 11:30. Please pick up your entry after judging if possible. We ask that winning entries be on display until Fair closing at 5 PM, when they can be claimed if you agree to display your Kids' Art.

There will be a prize for each age group and the winners will be displayed on the Kid Power DC and DC State Fair websites. All entries must be picked up by the close of the State Fair if the artist wishes to keep them.
