National Student Art Competition 2021
Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the White House Historical Association
“Laura and I are glad to know the White House Historical Association is sponsoring a national student art competition. This is a great way to examine and celebrate the story of our Nation and inspire a new generation of citizens to study two of my favorite subjects – history and art. Congratulations to the WHHA on 60 years, and thank you for your important work. We send our best wishes to all the young artists.”
- Former President George W. Bush
To celebrate our 60th anniversary, the White House Historical Association sought 2D art submissions from K-12 students across the country that depicted and reflected the White House, its collection, and its diverse history – that of presidents and first families, enslaved workers, dedicated staff, and the American public. Submissions were broken into grades K-3, 4-8, and 9-12. First place entries in each category will win $1,000. This competition is officially recognized by America250.
The competition was open for submissions from February 1, 2021 to May 21, 2021. Winners will be announced in July 2021.
