Deadline for Packers art contest extended until May 12
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The deadline for students to submit their art for the Packers Student Art Contest has been extended until May 12.
Winners of the contest will have the chance to have their artwork featured at Lambeau Field and get a $5,000 donation for their school. The winning pieces will be displayed in the stadium's club levels throughout the 2019 season.
The theme of this year’s contest is “The Next 100 Seasons of Packers Football,” and asks students to share their vision for the future of the Packers by illustrating what the next century of the team will look like through painting, drawings, prints, digital art, mixed media or collage. What kinds of exciting victories, special traditions, and momentous plays will be featured on highlight reels? Will Lambeau Field or the game of football look different? What will stay the same as it’s always been?
Three grand prize winners also will receive a $5,000 donation to the winner’s school art program and an invitation for the winner and two guests to the Annual Suite Holder Tasting in July at Lambeau Field.
Eligible artists include students in grades 6-8 or grades 9-12, or students attending a university or technical college at the time of submission, with one winner chosen from each category. The final artwork size must be 16 inches by 20 inches on canvas, paper, or other mixed media.
Art pieces must weigh less than 30 pounds and be able to fit comfortably in a standard frame.
