Celebrating Hispanic Culture Art Contest

As we look ahead to Hispanic Heritage Month, we’re inviting all K–12 students to show us how they celebrate Hispanic Culture and bilingualism. This is a great opportunity to show off their artistic skills—and a great project for students and families.

Entries are due on June 30, and winners will receive a $500 Visa gift card from Renaissance. The winning artwork will also be featured in our Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations this fall! Come show off your artistic styles and shine a light on your story.

Contest Dates

The contest begins on May 5, 2023, at 8:00 am CT and ends on June 30, 2023, at 11:59 pm CT. All entries must be received by June 30, 2023, at 11:59 pm CT.

Who will select the winners?

The judging panel will consist of members of the Renaissance Biliteracy Council, Brand & Creative team, and Multilingual Innovations team. The panel will use the following criteria to select one winner in each grade band (K–3, 4–8, and 9–12):

  • Does the submitted art express the artist’s feelings of celebrating Hispanic Culture?
  • Does the art meet the dimension specifications?
  • Is there a creative depiction of Hispanic Culture and bilingualism? Is the originality of the art interesting?
  • Is there overall quality and command of the medium being used?
  • Does the art impact the viewer in relationship to the theme?
  • The composition and design of the art is also a judging criterion.
