20 January 2020 Shenandoah County Front Royal/Warren County News

Shenandoah National Park is now accepting entries for their annual “Youth Art in the Park” wildflower art contest, held in conjunction with the park’s annual Wildflower Weekend, May 9-10. The contest is open to students in grade levels K-12 in Albemarle, Augusta, Green, Madison, Page, Rappahannock, Rockingham, Shenandoah and Warren counties. Works may be submitted from home or through participating schools.

For the subjects of their work, artists must use wildflowers that are native to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Shenandoah National Park. The National Park website contains a list of eligible flower species, as well as photos of some species for reference. An overview of the program, with rules and entry form, are also provided.

Entries must be 8 x 10 inches, and only flat media such as acrylic, watercolor, charcoal, fabric, etc. may be used. Artwork should not be mounted, matted, or framed. The deadline for contest entries is April 10.
