Thanks so much to everyone who participated in the Time4Learning 2021 Back-to-School Art Contest. We received almost 4,000 drawings, and were so inspired by the creativity – it was very difficult to choose 12 winners!

Each drawing is already being brought to life as a stuffed plushie and we can’t wait to see the outcome and share it with you. In the meantime, here are the 12 winning drawings.

Are you ready to kick off the new school year with a fun art contest? With back-to-school season in full swing, our national drawing contest for kids is a great way to get students excited about art and learning! The winners will receive a stuffed creation of their drawing!

Here are all the details:

The Time4Learning 2021 Back-to-School Art Contest will run from September 20 – October 18. Students can draw and color anything — themselves, a pet, someone important to them, a unique character they made up — the sky’s the limit. They can even give their artwork a name or title.

Just like our last student art contest, we’ll be selecting four winners (12 total) from each of the following age categories.

  • 6 and under
  • 7-12
  • 13 -18
