Coral Springs, FL – On Thursday, March 25, 2021 through Thursday, April 15, 2021, the city will host a virtual art contest for students to show their love for our planet using recycled materials they find around the community. The city will accept entries from students K-12, who reside in Coral Springs or attend a school in the city.
 
Regarding the contest, Coral Springs Museum of Art Director Jill Brown said, “Art education is crucial for our youth; it develops problem-solving techniques, helps to see the world in new ways and fosters creativity. The benefits of embracing the arts are essential to all of us and that’s why in Coral Springs we believe providing opportunities like this contest encourages our young residents to find a love for the arts. As the city gears up to celebrate Earth Day on April 22, launching this virtual recycled art contest was a no-brainer.”

The artwork will be judged by city staff and the winners will be announced on Earth Day, April 22, 2021.

A first, second and third place winner will be selected from each grade group. The winners will be recognized on the city’s website, social media platforms and displayed at the entrance to the Coral Springs Museum of Art from April 22 through April 30, 2021. Feel free to enjoy the exhibition in the museum while visiting, admission is free to the public!
