NEW opportunities for student art submissions

This year, monetary prizes will be awarded to ten individual student winners. In addition, a new “Loeymae Lange Memorial Best in Class Award” will be given to one student artist whose art exemplifies originality, expression, use of artistic elements, principals of design, overall presentation of artwork, and message.

The new Best in Class Award, offered through WEA Member Benefits Foundation, Inc., is named in memory of Loeymae Lange, who taught art at Cooper Elementary School in Burlington, Wisconsin, for 30 years. Her brother, Dr. Paul Lange, and his wife June are honoring Loeymae’s legacy and love for art by providing this new memorial gift and additional financial support to our art contest.

This is a great opportunity for your students to shine! More information about the art contest, including contest rules, eligibility, and art submission information is available at
