I am happy to report that there have been a total of thirty-seven separate pieces submitted for the CoV-ART Children’s Art Contest. The announcement of prizes were made at 12:00pm on April 10th via a Facebook Live at Your Health Forum.
The theme was to develop a positive message related to how we are addressing the COVID-19 pandemic or to instill hope. Alternatively, a younger child may have decided to use the art to explore how they feel during this time.
Congratulations go to all the children who submitted artwork for the CoV-ART children’s contest! Thanks for the votes; these were factored in with the selections.
First Place ($200): Tyler, Submission #34
Second Place ($75): Matias, Submission #12
Third Place ($50): Kelsey, #7 and Kalea, #5 tied!
Honorable Mentions ($25)
Congratulations to our winners! It was incredibly difficult to choose between all the beautiful and thoughtful works.
We will communicate with you within 1 week by email. The prizes can be “delivered” via PayPal or Venmo (easiest).
Every entrant will also receive a downloadable link to a free e-book copy of Pepe Finds His Way ! Every entrant may also have a chance for their artwork to be featured (and the artist credited!) in a future book or compilation.
Thanks for allowing me to be a part of this experience with you! Don’t forget to check out our Cov-ART General Contest that is still accepting submissions until April 23rd.
We may decide on running another children’s contest with new submissions in the next few weeks! If you have something that you would like to be included in the gallery, we can place it on the site as well. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
