Packers invite student artists to submit artwork for a chance to win prizes
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Green Bay Packers are inviting student artists to submit artwork for the fourth annual Packers Student Art Contest.
Three grand prize winners will earn the opportunity for their art to be featured at Lambeau Field, a trip to a Packers home game and a donation for their school, according to a press release.
The deadline to submit pieces is July 12, and the winning pieces will be displayed in the stadium’s club levels throughout the upcoming season.
The release says the three grand prize winners also will receive a $5,000 donation to their school art program and tickets for each winner and two guests to a future game at Lambeau.
This year’s contest theme is “Packers Gameday Traditions."
Students are asked to share an artistic representation of what game day means to them. Examples include fans tailgating at Lambeau Field or wearing green and gold halfway around the world. It could "illustrate the intensity of preparation or highlight the emotions and adrenaline of a close game" or "depict the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat."
Artists are invited to create a painting, drawing, print, digital art, mixed media or collage.
The guidelines say 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.
Final artwork must be either 8.5 inches by 11 inches or 16 inches by 20 inches on canvas, paper, or other mixed media, according to Packers guidelines. Art pieces must weigh less than 30 pounds and be able to fit comfortably in a standard frame.
