Frankfort, IL... State Representative Margo McDermed (R-Mokena) is pleased to announce her first annual art contest for the 37th district.
“This is a great way to showcase the student talent from across the 37th district and winners will have their art displayed in my Capitol office,” said McDermed. “I anticipate many beautiful entries and am looking forward to making this an annual competition.”
Students who are in 6th grade through high school seniors will compete by drawing or painting a picture that resembles their community. This can feature their school, church, home or a nature scene. Entries will be judged on beauty, uniqueness and fulfilled intent. A drawing or painting from one middle schooler and one high schooler from throughout the district will be selected.
Entries will be accepted by local schools as well as at Rep. McDermed’s office at 11032 W Lincoln Hwy in Frankfort. The deadline for the district wide student art contest is April 26th.
