FCPL invites teens (13–18) who are Fairfax County residents to enter their best artwork in our 2021 Black History Month teen art contest.
An official contest entry form along with original artwork must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. on Friday, February 26, 2021.
Your artwork should depict important people, significant places, or meaningful moments in Black history and should be accompanied by “word art” — a word/words, a phrase/phrases — that are incorporated into the artwork to provide a connection from the work of art to the intended theme of the artwork. Be creative, have fun, and make an impact with your art!
A first, second, and third-place winner will be announced. Gift certificates of $40, $30, & $20 will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners respectively. All artwork will be available for viewing on our virtual gallery during the open submission period of the contest, Monday, February 8th–Friday, February 26th.
Winners will be judged by Fairfax County Public Library staff and volunteers.
