NORFOLK — The annual Norfolk Community Day Youth Art Show hits its 10th anniversary this year.

The show will be at Community Day, Saturday, June 1, at the Holmes Complex off Myrtle Street.

Norfolk Lions are again sponsoring the show, which is open to all residents in grades 1 through 6. Artwork submitted should represent a scene around town.

All artwork must be drawn or painted on paper no larger than 11 inches by 17 inches, using pencils, pens, crayons, paint, markers and fabric. Each entry must include an entry form taped to the backside of the art.

Entry forms have been given to children in Norfolk schools and additional forms can be found in each classroom. There are also forms available in the main lobby of the Norfolk Public Library.

Entries will also be judged by a panel appointed by the Norfolk Lions in three age groups: grades 1 and 2, grades 3 and 4, and grades 5 and 6. Winners will be selected based on artistic creativity, neatness and originality.

All entries will receive an award and winners in each age group will be awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and honorable mention ribbons. The 1st place winners in each age group and one grand prize winner will also each receive gift certificates.

The winning entries will be displayed at the library for two weeks after Community Day.

The contest entry deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, May 24. Entries can be placed in the collection boxes at the elementary schools or library.
