We enable youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness though visual arts and design, giving them the opportunity to be recognized as artists locally, regionally and nationally. Through Boys & Girls Clubs of America's National Arts Contest, youth can submit artwork through three different contest areas:
Image Makers National Photography Contest is designed to help members go beyond snapshots and develop skills to take impactful photographs. The current popularity and accessibility of photography makes it a powerful activity to engage youth of all ages, while teaching skills they will use for the rest of their lives.
National Fine Arts Exhibit provides youth the opportunity to express themselves creatively, build confidence, learn new skills in the visual arts, and showcase their artwork.
Digital Arts Festivals expose youth to different elements of digital arts by creating their own original work in different digital media forms, with the potential to be exhibited regionally and nationally.
