Calling All Student-Artists:
Submit Artwork For Athlos Academy’s ‘Kindness Poster’ Contest
Hey, kids: are you a student-artist who has mad-skills with a marker, crayon or pen?
Hey, parents and guardians: do you have a child who loves to draw
Athlos Academy is holding its first annual kindness poster contest! Athlos is calling on all student-artists in all grade levels to submit their best artwork for the competition.
What’s kindness? Kindness is a positive call to action to counteract the negative impact of bullying, and Athlos Academy’s core values of leadership, integrity, social intelligence, creativity, and courage are the basis of kindness.
With that being said, this year’s kindness poster theme is: Kindness Begins with Me! and those words must be on the poster. Winners of the contest will literally help create and spread kindness in our school.
Each grade will hold its own mini-poster contest, and winning entries from each grade will then move on to the school-wide competition. The deadline for poster submissions is October 31st.
The school winners will be recognized at the November School Board meeting and will receive a Kindle tablet device. Winning posters will also be posted on the school website and printed for use in our school and our main offices in Boise, ID.
In addition to needing the words Kindness Begins with Me! on the poster, posters must be on 11” x 17” paper. Lightweight paper, if used, should be mounted on tag board. The student’s name, grade, and school must be on the back of the poster.
Crayons, felt tip pens, markers, paint, pen and ink, pencil, etc., may be used to create the poster, but do not use photographs or Xerox copies. Do not use wood, plastic, glass, metal, string, fabric, felt, collage materials, stencils, internet downloads, or computer art.
Posters cannot include copyrighted characters from comics, cartoons, television programs, movies, newspapers, magazines, etc.
Posters can be submitted to homeroom teachers.
