Do you have a budding artist? Check out this list of art contests they can enter (sorted by due date)! A contest is a great way to encourage children to keep practicing their art at home. They may already have a piece of art they’re proud of that qualifies for one of these contests, or they may decide to create a piece specifically for one of these contests. With prizes up to $1,000, some of these contests can be very exciting! Be sure to read the full rules for a contest before you enter.  I’ll update this list periodically, so bookmark this page!
