Local Organizations Sponsor Entries For The Missouri’s Bicentennial Youth Poster Contest
The State Historical Society of Missouri’s Bicentennial Commission announced two poster contests with a theme of “Sharing Missouri’s Stories” – past, present, and future. One contest is for youth grades 3-6 the other is for 7-12th graders. Detailed rules can be found at https://missouri2021.org/bicentennial-poster/.
Cultural Corner Art Guild and Gallery is offering a FREE Class on August 20th to answer your questions about the contest, brainstorm ideas and students can begin work on their individual posters. Materials will be provided. The class begins at 6:00 pm.
All posters must be completed and submitted to the Cultural Corner Art Guild and Gallery by September 30th. Any youth in the appropriate age group can create a poster, but a non-profit sponsoring agency must submit the poster to the State office on his/her behalf. All local entries will be displayed at the Cultural Corner in early October. The local sponsoring organizations will judge and select entries to submit to the Missouri Bicentennial Commission Poster Contest.
