Take part in OAR’s inaugural Youth Art Contest!

Calling all young artists! OAR’s art contest is officially open and awaiting your submissions. Building on the new Friendship Tip Sheets OAR recently introduced, the theme for this year’s inaugural contest is “Friendship”. We look forward to see what friends and friendship look like through the eyes of children and youth. This will be their opportunity to tell a story about friendship in as abstract or literal sense as they would like.

The contest is open to autistic children and their siblings, relatives, and friends. We will announce winners at the beginning of Autism Awareness Month in April and subsequently feature them on that month’s donation E-cards. Additionally, all winners and honorable mentions could be featured in a special OAR calendar, holiday ornament, or other featured items.
