Students who live in the House District represented by Delegate Joseph Yost are once again eligible to submit entries for the annual 12th House of Delegates District Art Contest. The district includes a small portion of Pulaski County.
Entries will be accepted through Nov. 22, with first-, second- and third-place winners selected in three age groups: elementary (grades K-5), middle (grades 6-8) and high school (grades 9-12). The theme for this year’s contest is “Virginia Wildlife.”
“I’m excited to see the great work from students across the 12th District,” said Yost.
Winners’ artwork will be displayed in the General Assembly Building in Richmond. Winners also will be invited to visit the Capitol to see their artwork in January.
Winners will be chosen by members of local art councils and announced in early December.
