Calling All Student Artists for the Buncee Student Artist Contest!

I have something so exciting to share with all of you!  It is the Buncee Student Artist Contest! 

It is an amazing way for all of our young people to have their art, passions and voice heard within their community and throughout the world.
This idea all started with my friend and 5th grader at Van Meter, Molly, and her amazing Molly Dolls project.  You can read all about it here in post #3 of this blog series.  You will also find Molly Dolls on her Facebook page here.
She is the artist behind the incredible Molly Dolls, who are not only paper dolls but have become....
...their very own category of Buncee stickers now too!
The work we are doing with Molly, made us want to empower even more students to be artists within Buncee, so we are kicking off the new Buncee Student Artist Contest, which myself and a few others, including Molly, will be judging and announcing each month.  
You can find the details here on the Buncee Blog.  Here is what it says....
Once we heard about these dolls from Shannon and saw how cool they were, we knew we had to turn her drawings into Buncee stickers. So we did just that. The work Shannon was doing with Molly inspired us to empower even more students to be artists within Buncee.
At Buncee our main focus is student voice and choice. This is how the Buncee Student Artist Contest, a new project in collaboration with Shannon got started! We look forward to seeing creations from all over the world and see a student's voice come to life.
Here’s How It Works
Students from around the world can design their own stickers, backgrounds, and animations, and submit them to our creative committee. Featured artists will be selected every month, and their artwork will be uploaded to Buncee in our new “Student Art” category.
