Wednesday, August 22 through Friday, August 31
Kids across the First Coast unleashed their inner artists at the Y. Wielding a paintbrush and an endless imagination, children created works of art that incorporated one of the following themes: love, fun, play and together. The top artist at each branch received a special prize and is now eligible for our grand prize, a 16GB iPad 2!
The winner will be decided by YOU - Y members, family, friends, the community and our Facebook followers. Pictures of each masterpiece are posted on a special Facebook page. Take a look and choose your favorite. The entry that receives the most votes will be declared the winner and the artist will be contacted for the delivery of the grand prize.
UPDATE: Sydney Angel from Flagler Center Family YMCA is the I Heart Art Contest winner. She received more than 1,000 votes.
The work of art from each branch winner will also be placed into a silent auction that will be held at the Brooks Family YMCA from August 27 - 31. During this time, visitors to the Brooks Y will be able to place bids on the artwork. Please keep in mind that any painting submitted to the contest may not be returned for this reason. All proceeds from this auction will go toward our Give To The Y Campaign, providing children in need with access to programs and services that will help them learn, grow and thrive.
Don't forget, Y branches across the First Coast will be collecting new, packaged art supplies during our I Heart Art drive, August 13 - 27, to help make the world colorful.
