Every year in March, Chicago students and The Anti-Cruelty Society celebrate our birthday with an Animal Expressions Young Artist Contest! A new theme is selected each year, and all entries are judged by the Student Advisory board from the Marwen Art Institute of Chicago. Students have the opportunity to showcase their work during an awards ceremony recognizing winners from each age group and artistic genre. Scroll down to view the winners from last year’s contest.

Students who participate in the young artists expressions contest can receive a badge through the Chicago City of Learning. For details on the badge, click here.
