Packers call on student artists to submit artwork for contest
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Student artists are being asked to submit their artwork for the Green Bay Packers Student Art Contest.
Contest winners will have the opportunity to have their art be featured at Lambeau Field and receive a $5,000 donation for their school.
The winning pieces will be displayed in the stadium's club levels throughout the 2019 season.
This year's theme is "The Next 100 Seasons of Packers Football," and asks students to share their vision for the future of the Packers and illustrate what the next century of the team will look like. Artists are able to capture this year's theme through painting, drawings, prints, digital art, mixed media, or collage. The deadline for artwork is April 28.
Three grand prize winners will receive a $5,000 donation to the winner's school art program and an invitation for the winner and two guests to the Annual Suite Holder Tasting in July at Lambeau Field.
Eligible artists include students in grades 6-8 or grades 9-12, or students attending a university or technical college at the time of submission, with one winner chosen from each category. The final artwork size must be 16 inches by 20 inches on canvas, paper, or other mixed media.
Art pieces must weigh less than 30 pounds and be able to fit comfortably in a standard frame.
