Children's Artwork Contest


CONGRATULATIONS to Yavara, Zoe, and Sydney for winning this year's contest!

The Office of Sustainability invites all young family members of the Notre Dame community to join the conversation about sustainability and submit original works of art that focus on the theme of “plant it for the planet”.

Submissions should be fully created by the child and can be a painting, drawing, collage, or other two-dimensional work not exceeding 11x17 inches. Submissions will be accepted starting April 1 and will be accepted until April 20. 

Winners will be selected from three age groups - grades Pre-K-2, 3-5, and 6-8.  All submissions will be posted on this page, as they are received throughout the contest period.


Winners will be decided by popular vote by the campus community, one vote is allowed per person per day, per category. All entries will receive a participation prize, and prizes for winners include items from the South Bend Cubs, Potawatomi Zoo, and the City of South Bend Department of Recreation.
