Embrace the snow by creating a snowman for the Sun-Times’ newest student art contest

It can be an actual snowman or a drawing or painting. Put your creative talents to work, then email a photo of what you did for The Imagination Project. We’ll publish the best.

Create a snowman — real or imaginary — and send us a photo. We’ll pick the best ones and highlight them in the Sun-Times.

It’s time to celebrate, rather than rue, the snow.

We’re inviting kids from elementary age through high school anywhere in the city of Chicago or the suburbs to show us your creative best by building a snowman or drawing or painting one, then emailing it to us with your name, age, grade, school and hometown or neighborhood.

It’s for the newest Chicago Sun-Times art contest, part of what we call The Imagination Project — a chance for students to put their artistic talents to work during the coronavirus pandemic.

Besides having a little fun, you might also get some recognition. We’ll choose at least three winners in each of three age categories — elementary school, middle school and high school — and publish your work.

The Imagination Project began last April by asking for drawings or paintings on the theme of “Brighter Days.” Later came a short story contest with plots based on heroism and a contest for the best sidewalk and driveway chalk art.
