This contest gives local 6th grade elementary students an opportunity to show their artist abilities in designing the Annual Christmas Pin for the City of Gillette Community. Each year in August, Art Teachers at each elementary school in Gillette inform students to create a drawing to be submitted for selection by the Mayor’s Art Council. This contest is optional.


The winner is recognized at a Gillette City Council meeting in December. The Student receives $50.00 and an envelope of Christmas pins to share with family and friends. The Student's Art Teacher receives $150.00 for their art budget to use towards the current school year.

First Name, Last Name, School and Art Teacher’s Name need to be written on the back of the drawing, in pencil, not marker
