20 Schools to Receive $1,000!

The 20th Annual Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic Art Contest has begun and is now accepting entries from local young artists. All North Texas students in first through sixth grade are invited to participate. Art contest materials, including the illustration template, can be downloaded online at www.cottonbowl.com/art-contest. The deadline to mail in the illustrations is Friday, November 4th. The winners are determined by a select group of judges and notified by the end of November.

“For 20 years now we have enjoyed engaging with the younger sports fans in the Metroplex through our art contest,” Goodyear Cotton Bowl President Rick Baker said, “We hope that art teachers from across the North Texas community will encourage their students to participate.”

A total of 18 young artists comprising three age categories (first and second grade, third and fourth grade, fifth and sixth grade) will be honored at their respective schools in recognition of their winning works of art. Additionally, each winner will receive tickets to the 81st Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic at AT&T Stadium in Arlington on January 2, 2017.

This year’s art contest will feature a new award. To celebrate the 20th year hosting the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Art Contest, 20 schools who submit the highest number of qualified entries will win $1,000 for their art programs.

“We want to encourage all elementary school art teachers to participate and make the 20th Annual Goodyear Cotton Bowl Art Contest part of their classroom curriculum,” Baker said. “As an incentive, not only can the young artists win tickets and great prizes, but the teachers of winning students are also rewarded for their participation with money for new classroom supplies.”
