Knox County Recorders Office once again holding Art Competition

MOUNT VERNON — For the second year, the Knox County Recorder’s Office invites all Knox County students, grades K-12, to participate in a countywide school art competition.

Winners will receive a prize and have their art hung in the county recorder’s office in the Knox County Service Center for one year, after which time the art will be returned to the artist.

The theme for this year is: Be True To Your School

Show us what you love about your school in a 2-dimensional, 8.5×11 graphic art piece such as a painting, drawing, collage, or combination thereof. Art submissions will be collected from April 3rd until April 25th.

Winners will be announced by the end of the school year. Art pieces can be mailed or brought to the county recorder’s office (117 E High St, Mount Vernon, OH 43050) or with approval from the school, left in your school’s main office for collection by the Recorder’s office. Please include name, age, grade, school, and title on the back of the work.

We are excited to see what our talented students come up with!

One winner will be chosen per category per school. This competition is open to Knox County homeschoolers and Knox County students who attend digital schools as well.

Categories are as follows: Grades K-1, Grades 2-3, Grades 4-5, Grades 6-8, Grades 9-10, Grades 11-12
