Education After Hours Call for “North Platte School Spirit”Art Donations

Who and What can be entered:

We are challenging your creativity by asking you to make something that encompasses North Platte School Spirit!  Blue and Gold, Bulldog, North Platte Schools.  Think outside the box…your piece should be functional enough to display in ones home, office,  a school building or amongst  landscape.  Although thematic is our choice, we also welcome your own style.  Our goal is for you to have fun, create a one of a kind masterpiece or refurbish and rejuvenate something old into something wonderful and exciting all while benefitting the North Platte Public Schools Foundation and promoting School Spirit.

What: 

NPPSF will display the works of art at the Mckinley Education Center from March 15th-April 6.  From there the pieces will be auctioned off at the Education After Hours Event/Distinguished Alumni Banquet, a celebration of Educators and Alumni April 7th, 2017.  The end result is that the pieces will be displayed in local schools and businesses throughout North Platte. 

Any medium is welcome:  Paint, Metal, Photography, pottery, etc.

Why:

We hope that you will join us in our mission and donate a piece of your art or handi work in support of the North Platte Public Schools Foundation.  The proceeds from the art showcase and auction will help support year round programs including the Prepared to Learn which directly supports our students.
