2021 Daffodil Daze Art Contest

501 LIFE is partnering with First Security Bank and Conway Regional Health System to present the annual Daffodil Daze Art Contest.

“After missing 2020 due to COVID-19, we are thrilled to showcase the artistic talents of Faulkner County students,” said 501 LIFE Publisher Jeremy Higginbotham.  “Their work will inspire many throughout the 501 as we celebrate this beautiful time of year.”

In 2019, judges reviewed nearly 300 entries before deciding on the winners.  “Art is such an important element of our culture and our society,” said Daffodil Daze Chairman Donna Evans. “And so are daffodil flowers in our parks and along our trails! Both lend beauty and creativity to the world of Conway. I’m so excited that Daffodil Daze is returning to offer our students an opportunity to display their talents in this unique contest.”

The Daffodil Daze Art Contest is open to all Faulkner County students in kindergarten through the 12th grade. Entries must be submitted on 8.5-by-11-inch paper in any art medium, including photos. On the back, please list the student’s name, school, grade, teacher, phone number and email address. The subject can be any variety of daffodil flower(s).

Entries will be judged in three school divisions: elementary (kindergarten through fourth grade), middle school (fifth through eighth grade), and junior high/high school (ninth through 12th grade). 

Friday, April 16, is the deadline to submit entries at the 501 LIFE magazine office at 920 Locust Ave., Suite 104 (ring doorbell). Winners will be announced in 501 LIFE. For more information, email [email protected] or call 501.327.1501.
