BIG RAPIDS — Students have been in school for the majority of the instructional year and we’d like to give them an opportunity to showcase their talents in art and writing.

The annual Arts in Education section of the Pioneer will be published in May, and now is the time to submit artwork and writing samples for consideration to be included. work

Please make sure all pieces submitted include the student’s name, age, grade, school and teacher’s name. We will consider all authors and artists from kindergarten through 12th grade in all schools in Mecosta and Osceola counties.

Our goal is to publish at least one piece of art and one piece of creative writing from each school, but we will not be able to publish every submission.

Please have all pieces of art and creative writing dropped off to the Pioneer office or mailed by May 12 to Candy Allan, Pioneer, 115 N. Michigan Ave., Big Rapids, MI, 49307. If you have any questions regarding this project contact her at callan@pioneergroup.com or by phone at (231) 592-8386.

Here are the guidelines for submitting work:

FOR ART SUBMISSIONS: Crayon, marker, photos, watercolor, fingerpaint, pencil, colored pencil and most other 2-D pieces will be accepted. Teachers may email .jpg files of 3-D pieces created by students. Pieces should be no larger than 14 inches by 14 inches. All original pieces of art will be returned to schools. Please do not send more than 10 pieces of art per teacher.

FOR CREATIVE WRITING SUBMISSIONS: Pieces should be no longer than 500 words. If possible, email written submissions to callan@pioneergroup.com.
