K12 is calling all artists to step up to the drawing board and enter our 11th Annual Art Contest!

This year's theme is WHEN I GROW UP... What do you want to be when you grow up? Whether you dream of being a renowned brain surgeon, a flight engineer at NASA, an Oscar-winning actor, or something else entirely, we want to know. Show us in whatever artistic medium you prefer.

The K12 Art Contest is open to all students in kindergarten through 12th grade, and prizes will be awarded to the top three winners in each grade level and one overall "Best in Show" winner for the entry that blows our judges away!
