The Okaloosa Arts Alliance (OAA) would like to invite all Okaloosa County School students to participate in the 14th Annual OAA Okaloosa County School Poster Contest.  The theme for the contest is “What art means to me”.  It can be anything you can create on paper with markers, pencils, paint, pastels, charcoal, mixed media, or crayons. 

There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for elementary school students (K-4th), middle school students (5th-8th), and high school students (9th-12th) in Okaloosa County.   Each winner in each division will win a cash prize.   Additionally, the 1st place winners’ artwork will be posted in the OAA newsletter and on the OAA website.
