Youth Art Contests

Architecture by Children (ABC) Drawing Contest

Launched in 2009, this drawing contest is for all Iowa students in kindergarten through sixth grade. IAF offers this contest to encourage young people’s interest in art and architecture. We hope students will gain a new perspective on their environment by thinking about the buildings and spaces they occupy every day.

Snapshot Iowa Photography Contest

Launched in 2011, Snapshot Iowa encourages 7th – 12th grade students across Iowa to explore architecture in their community by submitting photographs featuring local architecture or architectural elements.
