"What civility means to me" Art Contest Deadline

Last Date:

1001 G Street, Washington DC 20001
Suite 1000W

All 5th-10th grade students in  DCPS or DC Public Charter Schools are invited to participate in an exciting new art contest at the request of the High Tea Society. The Inaugural Civili-Tea Citywide Creative Expression Contest will be hosted by the High Tea Society with the support of PEPCO, WMATA and the DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative and the Council of Churches of Greater Washington.

Entries will be received at the DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative offices (1001 G Street, Suite 1000W, Washington DC 20001, Metro Center) through Tuesday, June 3. Artwork will be on display at the PEPCO Art Gallery from June 12-14. The top three winners will receive a cash prize and will have their artwork displayed on a Metro bus. The winners will be announced at a reception at the PEPCO Art Gallery on Friday, June 13.

The theme of the exhibit is "What civility means to me." Student artwork may show examples of how to be civil and how they feel when they are treated respectfully. The hope of the Civili-tea contest founders is to inspire students to make the world around them a little gentler both through the art they create and actions they take and inspire in others.

There will be a Reception on June 13 at the Pepco Art Gallery at 6:30 pm that is free and open to the public.

Please contact Grace at intern@dccollaborative.org for full guidelines and entry form. All artwork must be received by June 3, 2014 and have a completed entry form attached. Direct questions to Grace at intern@dccollaborative.org.
