This contest which is sponsored by Fiskars, invites Boys & Girls Club members from all over the county to submit a photograph of their best arts and crafts work.  The artwork should fit within the publicized monthly theme.

Each month the winning artwork will be posted on Boys & Girls Clubs of America website and the artist will receive a $500 U.S. Savings Bond.  The Boys & Girls Club to which the winning artist belongs will also receive a $500 award to support arts programming.

This month, the theme was “I Love…”
