SCSQUARED halfBy San Clemente Times

The California State Parks Foundation announced it will sponsor the foundation’s first Youth Art Contest. Californians ages 4 to 18 can show their artistic side and display attributes of State Parks.

CSPF is asking for poster submissions no smaller than 8 inches by 10 inches and no larger than 11 inches by 17 inches. Any kind of paper is acceptable and the use of chalk, ink, marker, photography, paint and any other art media is welcome.

Teachers, parents, youth groups, community organizations or youth club leaders may administer the contest to groups of young artists, but each submission must be the work of one individual artist and must be accompanied by its own entry form.

Submissions will be accepted until Tuesday, Sept. 8 and one contest winner in each category will win a prize package including day-use passes to state parks, CSPF merchandise and $50 gift cards from Subway.

To enter, complete the Youth Art Contest entry form and attach it to each submission. Mail to

California State Parks Foundation, 1510 J St. Suite 220, Sacramento, 95814. The form can be found at
