Challenge your 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students to pick their favorite historic building or site in Queens and create a beautiful art masterpiece, while enriching themselves in the momentous history of our borough. Ideas include: Post Office, Library, Church, Statue, Temple, Mosque, Park, Cemetery or Historic Landmarked site.
The drawing of the building or site of your choice must be on a separate piece of paper (8.5”x11”). You may use pencils, colored pencils, crayons or watercolor paints. The drawing must include at least one paragraph stating the name of the place you drew, its history and the reason you picked the site. Then paper clip the paragraph to the back of the drawing. Make sure to use your school heading! Next, you must complete the entry form (which can be found on the QHS website), and either tape or glue it to the back of the drawing. Then give your drawing, the essay and $1 processing fee paper clipped together, to your teacher.
The 1st, 2nd, 3rd place winners will be chosen from each grade. 1st place winners will receive a $50 gift card, $35 for 2nd place winners and $25 for 3rd place winners. The Awards reception will be held on Saturday, May 11th
ENTRY DEADLINE: April 12th, 2019!
