Spring art contest

Springtime in Maine means lots of exciting time outdoors as trees and flowers bloom, frogs croak and everything awakens. Put your creativity to the test by capturing spring in art.

This art contest is all about nature—but we don’t want you to pick up each thing and keep them. Instead, draw a picture or take a photo of what you find, and send your favorite photo or scanned artwork via e-mail to Please include your name, the town you are from, your age, and a brief description of your art. Send in your photos or scanned artwork by May 11.

We’ll sample the photos and publish them in our Compass section in late May.
