Our 2016 Youth Art Contest is now open! The theme of this year’s contest is ‘”Discover State Parks” and we invite youth ages 4-18 to participate by creating artwork that shares their experiences in state parks and what they have discovered during their visits.
First, second, and third place winners will be announced for each age category. Winners will receive prize packages from our E-Store, and their artwork will be showcased online, in print, and in venues throughout California.
CSPF hopes that our Youth Art Contest will encourage students to seek inspiration in California’s state parks. We encourage parents, teachers and youth leaders to help spread the word about the youth art contest.
