Student art featured in the Gallery are the winning entries from the Big River Art Contest. Student artists in grades 4-6 use their experiences learning on the Mississippi River and studies in the classroom to create art that is beautiful, whimsical, and informative.
The Big River Journey Art Contest artwork is judged in four categories:
The Mighty Mississippi
Caring for the River
Big River Journey
Journey to the Falls
In each category there are four winners, including a grand prize winner. Occasionally, there may also be honorable mentions. The Big River Art Contest occurs annually, with entries due and winners chosen near to the end of the school year. Contest and eligibility rules are found on our website.
