Enter OAR's Youth Art Contest Today! | Organization for Autism Research

OAR News

Calling all young artists! OAR’s art contest is officially open and awaiting submissions. Building on OAR’s new Friendship Tip Sheets, the theme for this year’s inaugural contest is “friendship.” We look forward to seeing what friendship looks 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 National 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.

Submissions will be accepted in two categories:

  • Autistic youth
  • Siblings, relatives, and friends of autistic individuals

OAR will judge submissions according to age: 8 and under, 9 to 13, and 14 and older.

Artwork must be submitted online as a jpg, png, or pdf. Each submission must include the digital artwork, artist’s name, contact information, project title, and a brief description of the artwork. To enter or for more information, visit OAR’s website.

All entries are due by February 28, 2021.
