The 7th Annual  Soroptimist Live Your Dream art contest pays tribute to the launch of Soroptimist’s new program—Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls. The global program aims to help girls to reach their full potential and live their dreams, by providing them with access to professional role models, education and other resources they need to achieve their career goals.  In honor of this exciting new initiative, we invite students, ages 4-18, to draw or paint a picture of a working woman they know and admire.

 

Artwork will be judged in the following categories:

 

  • Category 1: Ages 4-7

  • Category 2: Ages 8-11

  • Category 3: Ages 12-15

  • Category 4: Ages 16-18

 

Rules

 

  • Students must draw or paint a picture of a working woman they know and admire.

  • The drawings can be created in any medium that remains flat on the page, i.e., pencil, paint, crayon, or even computer-generated using computer drawing or design software. All artwork must be original. The use of clip art is not permitted.

  • Work should be no larger than 11” by 14”. 

  • Students and their parent/guardian must complete the entry form and glue or staple it to the back of their artwork. Artwork that does not have an attached entry form will be disqualified.

Judging 

 

Initially, a Live Your Dream team will narrow the entries down in each category. Then pictures of the finalists in each category will be posted on the Live Your Dream Facebook page throughout the month of February (one category per week). The artwork with the most “likes” in each category will signify the winner. There will be one student winner in each category.

 

Prizes

 

The winner in each category will receive a gift certificate to the Live Your Dream store. In addition to the Facebook page, the winning artwork will also be featured at LiveYourDream.org.
