2nd Annual Youth Art Contest!
The Colorado Optometric Association invited students in grades 1-12 to submit artwork for the 2nd Annual Youth Art Competition. The 2021 competition encouraged students to reflect on “My Future Vision”.
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 their own future world.
“My Future Vision”: Do you have a goal that you’re striving for? 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 into your future world. Colorado optometrists agree that understanding the value of your eyesight is the first step in taking care of your priceless eyes.
