  • Hand-drawn or hand-painted artwork
  • Written word (essay, poetry, composition, etc.) 

The theme for 2021 encourages students to illustrate -- through art or the written word -- how you and your loved ones have supported each other through all of the changes that have happened in the previous year, from remote schooling to finding new ways to stay connected to friends and family.
