2023 Student Art Contest

Our Second Annual Student Art Contest is around the corner! Last year, the Middle District (through its Bench Bar Funds) and Fed Bar sponsored a fantastic Contest. This year, we’re opening the Contest to the entire Division. All sixth- to twelfth-grade students are invited to create artwork in response to a prompt.


Submissions due October 27, 2023

If you know any local students interested in art, please share the flyer below. The first place prize is $500. And the submissions have a chance to be selected for display in the Federal courthouse. For more information and full Contest details, see the Court’s website here.

Next time you’re in Court, keep an eye out for work of Southwest Florida’s talented art students.
