The Reading Municipal Light Department (RMLD) invites high school students from Reading, North Reading, Wilmington, and areas of Lynnfield served by the RMLD to participate in its 6th Annual High School Art Contest. Any two-dimensional art medium will be accepted, including, but not limited to, drawings, paintings, sketches, photography, and graphic art. Artwork must be submitted by Friday, March 31, 2023.
The continuing pandemic has made versatility a critical characteristic for businesses, schools, and individuals. To that end, the theme of this year’s contest is Trail Blazing. Students are asked to visually portray the concept of trail blazing while incorporating the RMLD and/or electricity into their artwork.
Each student who submits artwork by the deadline will receive a certificate for ten hours of community service. Up to five winners will be selected based on the number of submissions received and the content of the artwork. Winners will receive a gift card for qualified school or art supplies with a top prize of up to $100.
The RMLD has produced a short video describing the contest and theme. The video and official contest rules are available at https://www.rmld.com/hsartcontest2023
Up to five winners will be selected, and all participants credited community service hours.
