The Columbia Festival of the Arts will feature an original piece of artwork by a Howard County K-12 student on its 2010 brochures, programs and posters. Winning work will be purchased from the student for a cash prize of $500. Certificates will be awarded for the best entry in each grade level and also for juror's and director's choices. Selected pieces will be on display at the festival June 11-26.
On their entries, students should visually interpret the essence of a multidisciplinary arts festival. Dimensions of the artwork should be 16 1/2 by 11 3/4 inches on white paper only. Deadline is at 5 p.m. Feb. 5. Winning entries become property of the festival arts.
