Contest support provided by Tyler Junior College Art Department
The Academic Rodeo Art Contest is designed to create a healthy competition in the arts. Places are awarded in each grade level, 1st through 12th. The subject of the art is the student's choice.
The primary focus is creation of a two-dimensional piece. When paper, fabric, yarn, etc. are added to the drawing, the additions should add texture, not depth to the work, and should not add weight, making it difficult to display for a long period of time.
- 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places are awarded in each grade, and up to 3 Honorable Mention awards.
- Place winners receive a medallion. Elementary winners receive a cash award of $25.00, $15.00 or $10.00. Middle School and High School winners are eligible to apply for Academic Rodeo Scholarships.
- Honorable Mention recipients receive an Honorable Mention ribbon.
- Others receive a participation ribbon.
