Youth Art Competition

Presented by James H. & Madalynne Norick Foundation

  

It's time to start now!

It's never too early to create artwork for the 2016 Red Earth Festival Youth Art Competition sponsored by the James H. & Madalynne Norick Foundation in Oklahoma City.  Native American youth ages 9-18 from throughout Oklahoma and the region are invited to participate in the 2016 Youth Art Competition and Show during the Red Earth Festival, scheduled June 10-12 in Oklahoma City.

The Red Earth Youth Art Competition is divided into three age groups ages 9-12, 13-15, and 16-18.  Participants can enter seven art categories including pottery, painting/drawing, graphics/photography, sculpture, basketry, beadwork, cultural items and jewelry. Prize money is awarded to the top three winners in each division category, along with a "Best of Show" award.
