Art, Poetry and Writing Contests Homeschool and Public School

I was contacted via email to see if I wanted to post these contests for kids. Homeschoolers are welcome, so of course I said yes. I think we might even enter one or two, especially the poetry. DJ loves poetry. Anyway this is what was sent to me:

Art Contest
Students submit a digital photo of any art (other than photography) and submit it online at www.celebratingart.com. Two contests each year — Next deadline is April 3rd. There are 10 winners in each grade division of K-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12 who will receive $25 and a full color book that includes their art. Other artists of merit will be invited to be published. There are no costs to enter or to be published. Open to all students in the US and Canada. Each year we have several home schoolers who are among our national winners.
