iHeartDecatur Art Contest for Decatur Elementary Students
Decatur is celebrating its bicentennial birthday and National Youth Art Month!
The Designing Decatur activity booklet, published by the City of Decatur’s Historic Preservation Commission, highlights 20 of our City’s unique architectural icons.
We want to expand the love, and we want to hear from our elementary school children what Decatur means to them!
- Select one of the coloring pages below or go to the Decatur Public Library to pick up a copy of the booklet.
- After coloring their chosen page, students will write a few sentences describing why the landmark they chose is important to them. (Does your artist want to color a Decatur building that isn’t in the booklet? No worries! We also an activity page where you can draw any building in the city and submit it, too!)
- Return the submission to the Decatur Public Library or City Hall by March 12, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. with a release form.
Please note: Contestants must be Decatur residents and currently enrolled in kindergarten – 5th grade.
Submitted artwork will be displayed downtown for several weeks as part of the celebration before being returned to the applicants. All entries will be featured in store windows in Downtown Decatur until April 30, 2021.
