Celebrate Immigrant Heritage Month by participating in our art contest! We invite Fairfax County youth to draw inspiration from their families or their communities to portray the colorful, diverse county we share. Not sure where to start? Choose one of the following prompts for your art: 

  • We all belong in Fairfax County.
  • This is my family portrait.
  • This is where I am from. 
  • We celebrate the contributions of our immigrant community members. 

Artwork can be in any format but will need to be scanned or photographed and submitted via our online form. Three winners will be selected per category: kindergarten-2nd grade, 3rd-6th grade and 7th-12th grade. Winners will receive a Barnes & Noble gift card and have their art displayed in a traveling exhibit. 

To participate, you must be 5-18 and live or study in Fairfax County. All art should be submitted via our online form, which will be open from May 15 - June 15, 2024. Winners will be announced June 21, 2024 and winning artwork will be displayed in a traveling exhibit throughout Fairfax County. All submissions will be uploaded to our virtual gallery
