The OK Foster Wishes Fostering Art Contest was developed to create awareness about foster care, issues and those who are affected by it, in Oklahoma. The event provides a chance for a child in foster care to express their creativity and inspire others to get involved. Fostering Art allows the artist to choose the content and the medium, our only request is the artwork is 2-Dimensional and no longer than 11×14.
Each year a different theme is chosen for the artists to render their expression. The theme for 2014 is “Wish.” The hope is to provide the children with a platform to be validated, supported, and encouraged by the public through their artistic talents.
Judging will be based on creativity and how clearly the theme is expressed. Some categories will be voted on by the public, while other categories will be judged by our esteemed Fostering Art panel of judges. Multiple winners will be selected with a chance to win prizes such as iPads and gift cards. Winners from each age bracket will receive a prize for their art and will be showcased at the Fostering Art Gala to benefit children in foster care. This year’s benefit will be held in May, in honor of Foster Care Awareness month.
