INTRODUCTION

Flint Hills Resources and The Art Museum of South Texas are pleased to announce the 2017 Visionarios Youth Art Contest for students in grades 1-12. This juried competition encourages young people to participate in art and provides an opportunity for them to be recognized for their efforts.

Research shows that students who study the arts perform better in the classroom and on standardized tests and are less likely to drop out of school. Arts education also helps students develop the self-discipline, cooperation, and self-motivation necessary for high achievement in school and in life. Flint Hills Resources and AMST are dedicated to helping young people envision a bright future and develop the discipline and creativity to achieve their goals.

 

THERE IS NO ENTRY FEE

Entries for Visionarios 2017 should be based on the student's interpretation of this year's theme:  

The name Visionarios celebrates youthful vision and creativity as expressed through art. This year's emphasis on arts integration into the classroom curriculum will give students the opportunity to demonstrate understanding of core S.T.E.M. concepts through visual art. Students will engage in a creative process which connects their art and a S.T.E.M. objective to make S.T.E.A.M!
