3rd Annual Youth Art Contest!
The Colorado Optometric Association is inviting students in grades 1-12 to submit artwork for the 3rd Annual Youth Art Competition. The 2022 competition encourages students to reflect on “Vision for Myself”.
Vision is a very important part of navigating the world especially for artists. Participants are encouraged to reflect on what they’d like to see or create in for their own future.
“Vision for Myself”: How do you see your future shaping up to be? What is a goal that you have that you’re striving for? How do you see yourself fitting into your community? Would you like to solve a problem that impacts your family, local community or global community? Tell us about it through your artwork. We also challenge you to think about the value of your “physical eyesight” in bringing this vision for yourself to life. Colorado optometrists agree that understanding the value of your eyesight is the first step in taking care of your priceless eyes.
Three students will win the #2020EyesColorado Artist Award!
*If a student who is homeschooled wins, the school donation will go to their homeschool chapter, online school or donated to See the Future Fund who distributes scholarships for the blind and visually impaired.
