2019 Sidewalk Art Contest

2019 Sidewalk Art Contest

The 11th Annual Sidewalk Art Contest was once again hosted by Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute. The kids had a perfect weather day to create all types and styles of inspiring masterpieces. Children in age specific categories; 5-7, 8-10, 11-13 and 14-18 had the opportunity to draw a positive image on a single sidewalk slab with chalk donated from Walmart and Target.

There were a total of 90 youth who competed in the finals of the 2019 Oneida County Youth Bureau Sidewalk Art Contest. Where applicable, medals were presented to the top three (3) finishers in age category.

“The kids artistic abilities and positive self-expressions were beautifully designed for all to be amazed,” Oneida County Youth Bureau Director Kevin Green said. “The kids decorated the sidewalk with pride, a lot of creative thought, and their energy was refreshing. This event would not be possible without the support of our fantastic partners; Walmart, Target and Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute. Our partners give the youth of Oneida County an opportunity to experience one of the crown jewels in Oneida County, Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute,” Green added.

The Youth Bureau would like to extend a special thank you to our 2019 Sidewalk Art Contest judges, Ms. Judy Ingalls, Ms. Rochelle Ferro and Ms. Sarah Marris!!

Please mark your calendars for Thursday, July 16, 2020 to participate in the finals of our 12th Annual Sidewalk Art Contest. The event is free and will once again be hosted at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute.

The Oneida County Youth Bureau looks forward to having your youth participate and be a part of this popular, fun-filled event as WE WORK TOGETHER to provide all our Oneida County youth with safe, positive and innovative programs.
