The Green Bay Packers are inviting student artists to submit artwork for the fifth annual Packers Student Art Contest, with three grand prize winners earning the opportunity for their art to be featured at Lambeau Field, a trip to a Packers home game and a donation for their school.

The deadline to submit pieces is Aug. 13 at 10 a.m. CDT, and the winning pieces will be displayed in the stadium’s club level during the upcoming season.

The three grand prize winners also will receive a $5,000 donation to the winner’s school art program and tickets for each winner and two guests to a future game at Lambeau Field.

The theme of this year’s contest is “Why Are the Packers Your Favorite Team?” and asks students to share an artistic representation of what the Packers mean to them.

Artists are invited to capture the theme through paintings, drawings, prints, digital art, mixed media or collage.

Eligible artists include students in grades 6-8 or grades 9-12, or students attending a university or technical college at the time of submission, with one winner chosen from each category. The final artwork size must be either 8.5 inches by 11 inches or 16 inches by 20 inches on canvas, paper, or other mixed media. Art pieces must weigh less than 30 pounds and be able to fit comfortably in a standard frame.
