Students in kindergarten through 12th grade are invited to participate in the contest. All entries must be submitted by Friday, June 1, to , 287 Bloomfield Ave., Caldwell.
The theme of this year’s contest is “Springtime.” Student artwork will be grouped for judging in four categories; Kindergarten to Second Grade, Third through Fifth Grade, Sixth trough Eighth Grade and Ninth through Twelfth Grade.
Artwork will be judged on the originality, the artistic composition and interpretation of the theme “Springtime.” All artwork submitted will initially be judged by members of the Women’s Club of Caldwell.

First Place winners in each group will receive prizes. Ribbons will be given to First, Second and Third Place winners. The winners will be announced at 3:30 p.m. on the day of the show.
