All Okaloosa County School students may participate in the Okaloosa Arts Alliance Fifth Annual OAA Okaloosa County School Poster Contest. The deadline has been extended to April 30. The OAA wants to know what you consider “Summer Fun." It can be anything you can create on paper with markers, pencils, paint, pastels, charcoal, or crayons.



Posters should be standard size (8 ˝ x 11) and include the name of the artist, their grade, and the name of their school. Mail entries to the Okaloosa Arts Alliance, Attention: School Poster Contest, P.O. Box 4426, Fort Walton Bch, FL 32549.  The winners will be chosen by a panel of judges and will be announced at the Family Fun Arts Fest. Entries can be mailed through an Okaloosa County School or by an individual student.



There will be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner for three elementary school students (K-4), three middle school students (5-8), and three high school students (9-12) in Okaloosa County.  Each 1st place winner will receive a $75 gift card; each 2nd place winner will receive a $50 gift card; and each 3rd place winner will receive a $25 gift card. Additionally, the 1st place winners’ artwork will be on 2014 promotional materials for the Seventh Annual Family Fun Arts Fest and on other OAA promotional materials.
