National Art Contest Winners
About the Contest: Education and My Future
In conjunction with our move to a new headquarters building, SEDL sponsored a national student art contest. We invited students between the ages of 5 and 18 to submit drawings or paintings reflecting their perspectives on how education impacts their future.
We received a total of 178 entries from students in 11 states throughout the U.S. From these, we selected a grand prize winner, plus first, second, and third place winners in each of four grade level categories.
The winning entries are now hanging in the first-floor gallery of SEDL’s new headquarters building.

SEDL recognized the first, second, and third place in each grade category by framing the work and displaying in SEDL’s national headquarters in Austin, Texas. SEDL has also recognized the winners with a $100 gift to their school, a certificate to their school and for the student. In addition, SEDL has made the following awards within each grade category:
1st place: iPod 40 GB
2nd place: iPod Nano
3rd place: iPod Shuffle
The Grand Prize Winner received a new iMac computer. The student, a parent, and their teacher will also be invited to Austin, Texas for a ceremony recognizing their artwork in the first half of 2008, courtesy of SEDL and the Stephen F. Austin Intercontinental Hotel. The trip will be coordinated to work with student, school, and family schedules.
