All Haddonfield students in elementary, middle, and high school grades are encouraged to  participate in this contest by submitting an image of an original piece of art inspired by the  theme. Students must be Haddonfield residents but do not have to attend school within the  Haddonfield School District.

Original works of art inspired by the theme in any of the following media may be entered into  the contest: paintings, drawings, pastels, fabrics, sculptures, photographs, or mixed media.  

Submissions will be accepted online through 6 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 23. Once  entered, the artwork will become part of the virtual exhibit, showcasing Haddonfield youth’s  artistic talent, creativity, and resiliency. The Exhibit will go live at the Haddonfield Health and  Wellness Festival on Oct. 1 and winners will be announced that day. 

Be a part of our Borough’s history and artistic tradition by sharing your works of art!  Mayor’s Wellness Campaign Student Art Contest and Exhibit Rules:
