Youth Art Contest Accepting Entries

The word ABILITY is boldly centered over action words such as reading, sewing, running..

Society’s Assets is sponsoring its 24th annual youth art contest.  Students in grades kindergarten through high school in the agency’s service area of Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, Rock, and Jefferson counties are invited to participate.  Schools in the area receive contest information.  Parents or students can contact Society’s Assets for entry blanks. Entry blanks (containing two pages) are also available by clicking on both Front and Back. The contest theme is “Ability. . . not Disability.”  Prizes are awarded to winners in each of the four grade categories. 

Contest entries must be received at a Society’s Assets office by 4:30 p.m. on Friday,  November 3, 2023.  Offices are located in Racine at 5200 Washington Avenue, Suite 225, in Kenosha at 5455 Sheridan Road, Suite 101, and in Elkhorn at 615 E. Geneva Street.  Judging takes place that month and winning entries in each age category are permanently displayed in agency offices.

“Our contest last year,” explained Adrienne Stiger, member of the Community Relations Committee of the Board of Directors that oversees the contest, “brought in over 600 entries from schools throughout our service area.  The quality and variety of the artwork impressed the judges.  The Committee believes this project creates disability awareness and acceptance and promotes positive action. It also shares our mission with young people in the community.” Contact the Society’s Assets office in Racine for more information, (262) 637-9128, ext. 3605.
