8th Annual My Ideal School Contest

I am pleased to announce the MSBA's 8th annual “My Ideal School” contest.  The primary goal of the “My Ideal School” contest is to promote discussion among students and teachers as to how thoughtful design and construction of schools in Massachusetts supports student learning.

In past years, we have received thousands of contest submissions from first graders across the Commonwealth.  All of the drawings have been unique and clearly, each child put a lot of hard work and creative thought into their drawings.

This year, we will select a number of regional winners and one grand prize winner to each receive a special prize graciously donated by Santander Bank. The grand prize winner will also have their winning contest picture featured on the cover of the MSBA’s next annual report.

All winners will be honored at a special awards ceremony at the Massachusetts State House, on June 5, 2014.  This contest is open to all first-grade students currently attending a Massachusetts public school.  View the 2014 contest flyer and entry form.

The deadline for submission is: May 2, 2014.
Winners will be posted here by Friday, May 9, 2014.


Thank you and we look forward to receiving many creative and thoughtful drawings!

John K. McCarthy

Executive Director
