What is Artist of the Month?
Ready, set, CRAFT! Each month Boys & Girls Club members are asked to submit a photograph of their best arts and crafts work to our Artist of the Month Contest. Each month will have a new theme to inspire youth and artwork should connect to the monthly specified theme. Winning artwork will be posted here on and the artist will receive a $500 U.S. Savings Bond. The artist's Boys & Girls Club will also receive a $500 award to support arts programming. The deadline to enter is the last day of each month.
