Westwind School Division’s 'Full STEAM Ahead' initiative is designed to highlight and celebrate the talent of our students in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) through annual contests and challenges.
Mini Masterpieces Art Contest
The Art Challenge is one element of our Full STEAM Ahead initiative, and it's all about creativity!
This challenge is open to all of our #TeamWestwind creative minds – students from grades 1 through 12 and our talented staff members. It's more than just a contest; it's a canvas for your imagination, a platform to showcase the unique artistic talents we have across the division!
Feel free to use any art supplies – pencils, markers, paints, charcoal, or pastels. Just remember, your artwork needs to be on paper or canvas and strictly 2D. All art must be at least 8.5 x 11 inches but no bigger than 18 x 24 inches.
We have different categories based on grade levels, ensuring a fair and exciting competition for all.
- Div 1: Grades 1-3
- Div 2: Grades 4-6
- Div 3: Grades 7-9
- Div 4: Grades 10-12
- Westwind Staff
