This contest is open to all first-grade students currently attending a Massachusetts public school and contest submissions must be postmarked by April 28, 2023 for consideration. 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 submission.
This year, regional winners will be chosen, each of whom will receive a special prize generously donated by M&T Bank. One lucky grand prize winner will also have their “My Ideal School” contest picture featured on the cover of the MSBA Annual Report. Also, winners will be honored at a special awards ceremony at the Massachusetts State House on June 7, 2023.
For more information, view the 2023 Contest Invitation and Entry Form.
Winners will be notified through their school's administration.
A point of contact for any inquiries or questions is Maria Puopolo at 617-720-4466.
Thank you and we look forward to receiving many creative and thoughtful drawings!
