Who: Students from Pre-K to 12th grade, Divisions are Pre-K-2nd grade, 3rd-6th grades, 7th-9th grades, and 10th-12th grades
What: An original art piece on hot air balloons - can be a drawing, painting, mixed media, sculpture, diorama, craft, collage, or combination of these. 
When: Submissions are due by May 15th at midnight
Where: Send a high-quality photograph of your art piece to, include the student’s name, school, grade, and hometown as well as contact information.
Voting:   The BFA Board will choose the top 20 pieces from each division.  From there the ballooning community will help us find the winners! Stage 1 will narrow the top 20 down to the top 10, Stage 2 will take us to the top 5 and Stage 3 of voting will determine the final winner of each division. 
We look forward to seeing all the creative art projects!
