OUR 2020 PENCIL DRAWING CONTEST
The Arts Guild is excited to offer the Pencil Drawing contest again this year. The area school student and interested adults are invited to participate in this yearly contest. The original contest was initiated by Chewelah resident, Cary Earl who funded the cash prizes. In honor of Mr. Earl's dedicated effort to encourage drawing, the Guild has continued to offer the contest.
Funding of the "Chewelah Bucks" prizes is currently in honor of a Guild Member who lost a great-grandson, Kade Thomas Comer McPheters, in a tragic accident.
Entries must be submitted to Kay Lupton (contact to arrange) by March 4, 2020.
