Annual Spiritual and Religious Youth Art Competition

December 2, 2017 - January 6, 2018

Thank you to all students who entered the 2017 Spiritual and Religious Youth Art Competition! Our jurors were impressed by the creativity and thoughtfulness the youth put in to their work. They had a hard time narrowing it down to the final list and encourage all who entered to keep making art.

With the Holiday season swiftly approaching, we are excited to announce this year's Annual Spiritual & Religious Youth Art Competition. This exhibition, formerly known as the Annual Christmas Lamb Art Show exhibition, sponsored by Ingrid F. Nemelka and the Nemelka family, is open to K-10 students living in Utah Valley. This year, in efforts to make this an interfaith celebration, we are encouraging students to create artwork focused on symbols of the season. 

This competition is open to K-10 students living within Utah Valley. Works for the show should be of a spiritual theme and reflect meaningful symbols of the holiday season. We encourage students to consider the following questions when thinking of subject matter:

  • How do you celebrate?
  • What symbols are meaningful to you during this time of year?
  • What are you favorite family traditions during the season?
