CollegeBound's annual Art, Essay & Poetry Contest invites all K-8th grade Baltimore City public school students to express their creativity around going to college. This year's theme is "With College, I Can..." We believe planning for college should begin as early as Kindergarten. Through College Awareness Month, the CollegeBound Foundation, Baltimore City Public Schools and their partners help parents and teachers begin the process of raising college awareness among Baltimore’s future achievers. This free art, essay and poetry contest is for Baltimore City Public School students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. The contest produces 27 winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each grade group -- K-2, 3-5, 6-8 -- in each category of Art, Essay, and Poetry.) Winners will be notified in mid-October.
