The Great Valley School District Education Foundation (GVSDEF) is excited to announce a new annual art contest! This project will be open to students in grades 5, 8, and 12. GVSDEF seeks to promote and honor student art by recognizing and displaying exceptional art works.

    Interested students should see their art teacher for detailed instructions and timeline. Students will be asked to create an original piece of artwork based on this year's theme "What I Wish for the World." Please note, only artworks created for SOAR will be considered. Artwork created for class assignments are not eligible. All student artwork submissions will be 2-dimensional. Students may use their own materials and/or use available materials provided by your school's art department.

    GVSDEF will invite a juror to jury the art submissions and select the winners. There will be one work chosen from Grade 5 participants in each elementary school, two works chosen from Grade 8, and two works chosen from Grade 12 respectively by the juror/s. The student artists whose works are chosen will recieve a plaque, a selection of appropriate art materials (or gift card), and their work will be framed and permanently hung in the Great Valley School District Office Gallery. Award recipients will be notified by their art teachers.

    GVSDEF looks forward to recognizing the amazing talents of our students and establishing a permanent student art gallery at District Office.
