Lilly Center Art Contest

Reflecting on the value of water, creatively expressing those reflections.

Each year, the Lilly Center Art Contest invites fourth-through-12th-grade students from all school districts in Kosciusko County to submit their creative depiction of our local waterways. Artists with winning entries receive cash prizes and the privilege of having their artwork on display in the community and featured in a calendar.

A 2021 calendar, featuring the 2019-20 winning entries, will be available for pick-up at Grace College, 200 Seminary Dr., Winona Lake, IN, this fall.

2020-21 Lilly Center Art Contest: Coming soon!

Details for the 2020-21 contest will be available soon. For now, take a look at our 2019-20 winners on Facbook!

Contest Rules

One entry per student. Students may use any medium, but the artwork must be one-dimensional and should not be folded, mounted, matted or framed. Do not use sand, glitter or material that may flake. A fixative must be sprayed on work using pastel or charcoal. Artwork should be neither smaller than 8”x10” nor larger than 16”x20”. No artwork depicting invasive species (i.e. trumpeter and tundra swans are acceptable, mute swans are not) will be considered.

Entry forms must be attached to the upper right corner on the back of the entry.

Artwork is returned to students after the judging process, unless the artwork is a winning selection. Winning selections will be returned following display around the community.
