Over the summer, OCYI invited Ottawa’s kids and youth to enter the first official Growing Up Great Art Contest! Requesting that children and youth illustrate what “growing up great” means to them, the contest welcomed doodles, paintings, drawings and craft projects in two age categories. OCYI staff were overwhelmed and delighted by each beautiful piece that appeared digitally in the OCYI art contest inbox. We are grateful to each child and youth who participated in this event and for the opportunity to connect with and acknowledge a shining group of young artists across the city.
See some of our winners below, and check out their art on the Art Contest page.
