2021 Fit For Life Youth Art Contest

Does your child(ren) have a knack for being a good creator of drawings and artwork?

Would they also be interested in having a chance to win $100 cash?

Imagine the possibilities that a kindergartener, a tweener, or a teenager in East Texas would have by being one of our first place winners of the 2021 Fit For Life Youth Art Contest!

Any high school student, middle school student, junior high student, elementary student,

charter student, or homeschool student in grades K - 12 can draw a creative, artistic, and expressive drawing that represents how the student wants to be "Fit For Life".


The drawings can be made using crayons, charcoal, oil-based paint, or any type of medium. Any type of paper, canvas, or physical display that can be sent by postal mail is allowable for entry.

Winners from previous years have been students from school districts and home school organizations in Tyler, Longview, Lindale, Whitehouse, Mabank, Nacogdoches, and Bullard.
