Students are invited to participate in art contest

“Home” means something a little different to each person. Illinois students get to explore their visions of home in the annual statewide art contest sponsored by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and the Illinois State Board of Education.

Students have until Jan. 12 to submit entries on the theme of “Home is…” The contest asks children from kindergarten through high school to interpret the theme however they want in two-dimensional art, such as a drawing, painting or collage.

For more on the contest, please see this week’s print edition.
