The Renton Municipal Arts Commission invites student artists, grades pre-K through 12, to submit their works about how they “Envision a Healthy Future.”

Art gives us hope, purpose and a desire to see a future beyond these difficult times. This competition is an effort to develop community and to bring together residents of our city through expressions of emotions.

The Contest

The art competition is open to Renton students grades pre-K through 12. We encourage submissions that convey emotions, feelings, ideas and innovative thoughts on COVID-19, social distancing, quarantine, and the fight against the virus, through digital submissions of any medium.

To enter, please follow these rules:

  1. Must be a Renton student (Pre-K through high school)
  2. Email a picture of the original art

The competition is open through June 16, 2020.  Prizes and gift cards to local businesses in $5 or $10 amounts will be awarded every week throughout the competition to artists submitting their work.
