Cedar Park Youth Art Contest 

This contest is aimed at showcasing the artistic excellence of Cedar Park residents under 18 years of age. This year’s submissions will have a theme, focusing on the Monarch Butterfly Recovery Initiative. To honor this initiative, artists will be asked to include an image of a monarch butterfly somewhere in their artwork. This requirement is very flexible, and creative submissions are encouraged! Selected pieces will be showcased in several public areas of the Cedar Park Public Library.
