The 2023 Poster Contest at Kids Arts Festival seeks entries that celebrate SummerNight, the Capital Region’s Biggest Summer Block Party.

Official entry forms will be available at the Kids Arts Festival on June 3. Prizes will be awarded in three age categories ~ 8 years old and younger, 9-13 years old; and 14 years and older. 

In their poster entry, artists of all ages could:

·       Convey what they love about the annual family event in downtown Schenectady.

·       Show how they would convince a friend who has never attended SummerNight to go.

·       Create original artwork (in other words, don’t trace from any other artwork.)

·       Avoid copyrighted characters (such as Superman or Harry Potter)

All entries must be turned in by 4 p.m. on June 3. Winning entries will be announced by July 1 on the Kids Arts Festival website.

People’s Choice voting of the winning entries will take place 5:30-8 p.m. Friday, July 14. at the Kids Zone in front of City Hall at SummerNight.
