National Fine Arts Contest

National Fine Arts Contest


We are very excited to announce we had over 500 Votes online for this year's contest! Typically, we hold an exhibit at the Club and have local community artists serve as judges. However, this year due to the pandemic, we held the contest online and give thanks to many of YOU for casting your votes! There are eight categories with ages ranging from 6 to 18 years old and the winners will be announced soon!

Using the interactive National Fine Arts Program Guide, staff can guide youth through the various art projects with step-by-step instructions and instructional videos.

All winning artwork will partake in the National Fine Arts Exhibit, which is displayed throughout the ensuing year at Boys & Girls Club of America events, including the annual National Conference.
