Thank you for your support of the 19th Annual Goodyear Cotton Bowl Art Contest. The art contest is now open to all North Texas 1st — 6th grade students. We hope you will participate in this exciting project. This is a great opportunity for the kids to learn about pursuing higher education with tangible benefits your students may gain from winning supplies and materials. Given the rigorous nature of new testing, you may use this contest as an opportunity to integrate curriculum objectives along with art concepts including perspective, proportion, unity, emphasis, etc. into their artwork. Another result of participating in the contest is the interest many students gain in going to college, and what experiences to look forward to as they grow up. One of the best prizes is winning tickets to the Cotton Bowl Classic game for the students and teachers!
Students may enter as an individual or with a school submitting at least 50 entries total. Everything you need to get excited and to stimulate your creativity is explained here. Please click on the art card link below to download and print your art card and entry information.
Keep in mind the home of the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic is AT&T Stadium in Arlington! Besides awarding some great prizes to the winners, we have devised a way to showcase each student's ability. Last year more than 2,500 pieces of artwork were submitted to us and we enjoyed displaying each one of them. You will find the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners' artwork proudly displayed at their school and at AT&T Stadium in the Cotton Bowl Office. Over 1,600 pieces are laminated and used as placemats for our premier luncheon. What a great way to welcome our visitors and show off our area's greatest resource — its youth!
You may also click on the packet links below to get some visual concepts and ideas as to what to draw including logos, pictures of the stadium, our trophy, etc. Reference our past winners as well.
Please be sure to fill out the appropriate entry form as well as an individual participant or class profile for school participants, so we're able to contact you if you're the winner.
