Cooperative Living Youth Art Contest

Cooperative Living magazine is accepting entries for its 19th annual Youth Art Contest, which is designed to showcase the best work of the youngest members of electric cooperatives.  The theme for this year’s contest is “How My Pet Makes Life Better.”

Entries should reflect young artists’ conception of that theme.

The contest is open to students in kindergarten through fifth grade who reside in a residence that is served by Powell Valley Electric Cooperative. (Both Virginia and Tennessee residents may participate in this contest.)

First-place winners in each category will receive a $25 gift card. The “Best in Show” artist will receive a $100 gift card and appear on the cover of the July issue of Cooperative Living, which will feature other winning artwork. The entry deadline is May 3.

Artwork should be configured vertically (portrait style) on an 8 ½-x-11-inch sheet of white paper. Art can be color or black and white in any medium, including crayon, pen, acrylics, charcoal and pencil. No tracing or party pictures are permitted.  All entries should be submitted using the online form with full instructions at
