Last updated 4/28/2021 at 2:03pm
FALLBROOK – The Junior Art of the Avocado art competition is calling all junior artists in the community to create an "avocado" masterpiece, thanks to the generous sponsorship of Fallbrook Propane Gas Company. This is the fourth year of the junior competition.
The junior art competition is open to Pre-K through eighth grade students. PK through first grade students will compete against each other; second through fourth grade students will compete against each other and fifth through eighth grade students will also compete against each other. The competition is limited to the first 25 registered artists in each category.
Artists may select their medium of choice; the only restriction is that an "avocado" must be seen in the artwork. Drawings or paintings must not be larger than 12 inches in any direction. See entry rules for further detailed instructions.
In each grade category, the awards are gift cards: first place – $75, second place – $50, and third place – $25. In addition, the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce will award a gift card in the amount of $75 for their "Chamber Pick."
Artwork must be delivered to the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce office, on Thursday, May 13 between 2 and 4 p.m. The Chamber office is located at 111 South Main Avenue.
The entries in the Junior Art of the Avocado competition will be on display at the Chamber office from May 18 through May 26. The artwork will be judged by the community. Awards will be presented at a private reception for the artists and their families.
