Student artwork needed for the next District Family Calendar!

News  /  Parents  /  Students

Each fall, District families receive a David Douglas wall calendar containing key school dates and photos from around the District. The project’s expenses are covered by the David Douglas Educational Foundation (DDEF), who is able to support the project each year with an anonymous donor’s contributions.

Next year’s 2019-20 calendar will feature art from David Douglas students. DDEF is holding a contest for the upcoming calendar artwork. The contest is divided by grade levels and each division has a theme. Winners will be interviewed to understand their creative vision and the how/why behind their creation.

Themes and Contest Rules:

K-8th Grades

Grades K-5 theme: “What I Like Best About My School”

Grades 6-8 theme: “My Favorite Memory”

Submit entries to the student’s homeroom teacher by April 15th. Artwork must be completed on one 8″x11″ horizontal sheet of white paper. Media choices include: color crayons, colored pencils, markers, pastels, or watercolor. Please include your name, grade, teacher, and school on back of artwork.

9-12th Grades

High school contestants are asked to submit a photo of their artwork, which can be in any medium (woodworking, jewelry, ceramics, metals, paintings, etc.)

Submit entries to the student’s art class instructor by April 15th. Include the student name, teacher name, grade and school with the submission. The student’s first and last name needs to be included in the digital file name so the photo is easily identifiable for the judging panel. For example: JaneDoe.jpg
