From the Desk of Georgia Superintendent Richard Woods:

The U.S. Office of the First Lady has announced an art opportunity for students in grades 3-12 entitled Building the Movement: America’s Youth Celebrate 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage. Submissions will culminate in an exhibit honoring the centennial anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, which gave American women the right to vote.

NATIONAL COMPETITION: I encourage Georgia students in grades 3-12 to take advantage of this opportunity so that our state is represented in the exhibition – click here to learn how to submit your artwork.

STATE COMPETITION: We would also like to recognize state-level winners here in Georgia. To submit your artwork at the state level, after submitting through the process outlined above, email a clear photo of your child’s artwork (cellphone quality is acceptable) along with your child’s name, the grade for the 2020-21 school year, school district, and school to mfrick@doe.k12.ga.us. These state-level entries may still be submitted after the national deadline has closed.

Please note that the Office of the First Lady submission guidelines asks parents and guardians to upload a photo of their child’s artwork, and to later send the original artwork via mail if selected as a winner. State selections will be based on photos only.
