K12 is calling all artists to step up to the drawing board and enter our 2014 Art Competition! 

The theme for 2014-2015 is Heroes. Who are the heroes in your life? Is it the doctors who are working to find a cure for cancer? Your aunt or uncle who’s a soldier overseas? Or comic superheroes like Batman or Superman? Show us in whatever medium you prefer along with a story of who your hero is and why you chose them.  

The K12 Art Competition is open to all students in kindergarten through 12th grade, and prizes will be awarded in each grade level. There will also be an overall Best in Show for the entry that blows our judges away!
