May 2021 Art Contest

There are so many incredible young artists out there, and with the launch of the Growing Math project, we want showcase your Growing Math students’ artistic talents in our quarterly multimedia art contest. The top three prize-winning works of art will win a cash prize and be featured by 7 Generation Games in an upcoming Growing Math project. 

Theme: Native history and culture

We invite and encourage all artists to interpret that in their own ways. It’s worthwhile to give credence to one’s identity and sense of place in the past or present. Our theme is Native history and culture. Native history is being made right now! These themes can include events that happened recently as long as it relates to Indigenous culture.

Digital art is amazing. If you 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 Arizona, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon and South Dakota. 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.

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