Live Your Dream Art Contest
The Soroptimist Live Your Dream Art Contest is a creative and fun way for children to celebrate the accomplishments of women around the world. This year’s contest invites boys and girls, ages 4-18, to draw or paint a woman who inspires them. This woman could be someone from history, someone in the student’s personal life, or even a fictional character.
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.
