In 1995, East Allen County Schools began holding an annual Art Contest as a way to showcase artwork created by our students. This contest is voluntary on everyone’s part, but it is a wonderful opportunity for our students. Each year four winners are chosen from the many pieces submitted. Winners receive a Certificate of Distinction and a gift certificate to the United Art and Education store for $25.00. Their artwork is then framed and kept on display here in the Board room for five years, at which time the artwork is returned to the student.

Thanks to United Art & Education for partnering with EACS!
