2021 K-12 Student Art Contest Winners

The Homewood Public Library held its 5th Annual Student Art Contest in March 2021. This year the contest was moved virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Library received the most submissions in all the contest years. All entries can be viewed here.

We appreciate all the artists, teachers, and parents for helping make this year a big success! After careful consideration, our local judges have selected the winning entries. The judges took note of style, creativity, and originality. Below are the selected artist and their artwork. Selected entries/artists can pick up their ribbons at the Homewood Public Library Monday-Saturday from 10am-5:30pm in the Children’s Department. Thank you to all our young artists. Keep creating!
