Students with colorful futures
Building upon the success of the annual Essay Contest, in 2016 we launched the Midwest Charter Schools Art Contest for K-5 charter school students from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. In that first year, nearly 2,000 students submitted artwork and shared their plans for the future. Our goal was to encourage kids to be creative and dream big -- and to help inspire adults to keep working hard to help kids turn their dreams into reality. We succeeded and were amazed to receive such an array of diverse ideas and talent!

We're so proud of all the charter school students who have shared their creative ideas with us through their artwork! They have demonstrated so many unique ways to work together, and we're excited to share those ideas with you!
