Metamora Woman’s Club is sponsoring a GFWC Illinois Youth Art Talent Contest through GFWC Illinois Federation of Women’s Clubs.                                         

There are two divisions: Category I - Grades 4, 5, and 6, Category II - Grades 7, 8, and 9  and Category III - Grades 10, 11, and 12.  The media used can be pencil, pen and ink, collage, mixed media, or pastels.  All entries must be an original work.  The maximum size is 20” x 24” with mat.  No glass.  

There must be a card on the top right hand corner on the back of the entry with the following information:  Student name, address, zip, telephone number and grade in school, media used, sponsoring club’s name and district number, the chairman’s name, address, and phone number.

Sponsoring clubs will submit the winning entries to the district art chairman who sends the district 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners to the state art chairman.  All entries sent to state will be displayed at the state convention in May where a club member will pick them up and the entry will be returned to the artist.

Metamora Woman’s Club is awarding monetary prizes to be determined by the number of entries.                      

Contact Arlene Rush at 367-2423 to make arrangements for getting the entries into her hands for judging.  The deadline is Jan. 15, 2011.
