Fall 2021 Growing Math Art Contest

We have had great success with our first two quarterly art contests. We are excited to announce the launch of our Fall 2021 Growing Math Art Contest. Any school or afterschool program who has educators participating in the Growing Math project are eligible.

Let’s see how many student artists participate this quarter! As with our past two, the top three works of art along with a random prize drawings are selected by a judging panel. The winners take home a cash prize and have a chance to be featured by 7 Generation Games in a future Growing Math project. 

Theme: Indigenous agriculture, hunting and gathering

We invite and encourage your student artists to interpret these themes using their preferred media. These themes can include historical and modern events as long as it relates to Indigenous agriculture, hunting, or gathering.

Digital art is amazing. If your students love using a tablet and a stylus, go for it! We encourage multimedia creativity.


Open to any students of schools that are licensed to use 7 Generation Games or are participating in the Growing Math Project.

(Growing Math is a free, USDA-funded program aimed at improving learning outcomes and engagement for Grades 3-8 for schools in AZ, MN, NM, ND, OR and SD. Teachers, we have paid PD for you and you can write lesson plans for us. Learn more here.) 

Top Prizes

Because we believe that artists – even young ones – should be paid for their work, contest winners will receive a cash (well, in the form of a gift card) prizes. 

Prizes will be awarded as follows:

  • FIRST PRIZE: $100
  • THIRD PRIZE: $50
  • RANDOM PRIZE: $25 (One random winner will be drawn from all participants to win $25.

All prizes will be awarded as gift cards. The top three prize-winning works of art will be featured by 7 Generation Games in a future Growing Math project.

A list of honorable mentions and their artwork will also be posted on the 7 Generation Games site.
