Nebraska students from first grade to eighth grade can enter the contest by submitting a drawing before the end of September. Twelve winners will receive $1,000 scholarships in a NEST 529 College Savings Plan account.
The Nebraska Art Teachers Association will judge the contest entries, which must be created with pencil, crayons, paint, watercolor or a paper collage.
More details about the contest and the college savings plans are available on the state treasurer's website.
