Crayola Draws Attention to Young Artists with Exhibition at Arkansas State Fair

“We created this exhibit to enthrall people with what a child can do when they put art tools to paper and to recognize children for their artistic achievements,” said Ron DeLong, Crayola Manager of Art Education.  A complete list of Arkansas winners follows. 


 


Throughout the week, families visiting the exhibition are invited to create a make-and-take craft activity -- a colorful fan --  to commemorate their trip to the fair.  


 

Crayola put out a call in March for children to submit their drawings and paintings for the chance to be featured at the Arkansas State Fair.  From all the pieces entered, 84 were selected for the exhibit based on visual appeal, workmanship, originality and age appropriateness.  From these works, first, second and third place winners were picked for each grade division -- kindergarten through 2nd grade, 3rd through 4th grade, and 5th through 6th grade.  Each winner will receive a U.S. savings bond ranging from $50 to $100 and a Crayola product prize pack.  (Open MS Word File.)
