60th MV Anniversary Art Contest due on 10/22
Sun, Oct 22
Mission Valley Elementary School

In 2017, MVE will mark our 60th year of advocating for great public schools in CA. To celebrate our anniversary, MVSA is inviting all MVE students to create art that depict themes based on MVE education.  All artwork will be displayed to all students and parents during Halloween Carnival.

All entries will be judged by three MV staff/teacher(s). There are two entry categories, including individual member entry and group entry (a group of MV students). 


  • Individual entry category: Three winners at each grade level (total of 21 winners)
  • Group entry category: One winner only

Time line:

  • Submit the digital photo of the proposed art entry to mvsafall2017@gmail.com, with a statement (explaining the entry or/and what you like about MV/teachers; 50 words max) by the due date (10/22). Student name, room name, teacher name, and contact phone number are also needed.
  • Please bring the art entry to display inside and outside the MUR room at 10:30am on 10/28.
