Submissions were accepted by the Crescent Heights PTA during the first few months of the school year. 
A contest winner will be selected from our panel of judges and move onto the Washington State level contest. If a student from Crescent Heights is selected, we will be contacted regarding the artwork progressing to the national contest. Contest winners at the state and national levels will be informed by the Spring.
