We would like a piece of your own artwork (or photo/digital image of a 3-dimensional piece) from your school days. This is not an art contest, so this artwork can be from elementary, middle or high school. Have it be one of your favorites that would be fitting for the front of a t-shirt. This can be submitted with your essay or afterward. A copy of the winning essay, corresponding artwork and a photo of the award winner will be posted on our website.
