Youth Art Contest
Each May, we invite our youth (ages 5-16) to present entries of a work of art in four age categories. These entries are judged by an outside professional and all decisions are final.
The deadline for entries to be in the Home Office is May 1st of each year.
Prizes are awarded at the following levels:
FIRST PLACE $50.00 and a NSS jacket
SECOND PLACE $25.00 and a NSS jacket
THIRD PLACE $15.00 and a NSS jacket
The Art Contest Rules are printed in the “National News” and “Youth Circle” magazines. In addition, they are available by contacting our Fraternal Department at 1-800-488-1890 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winner of the Van Gogh Level (ages 14-16) is awarded an extra $250.00 art scholarship provided that they enter an accredited art school, or pursue an art career in college. Additionally, this winner must meet the requirements of the NSS Scholarship Program.
All youth who enter and don’t receive a prize receive a NSS Life T-shirt.
