14th Annual My Ideal School Contest

My Ideal School Contest

We are pleased to announce the MSBA's 14th 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 engagement and 21st century 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 submission.

This year, we will select regional winners and one grand prize winner. Each winner will receive a special prize generously donated by People's United Bank and the grand prize winner will have their artwork 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 Wednesday, June 17th, 2020. This contest is open to all first-grade students currently attending a Massachusetts public school. For more information, view the 2020 Contest Invitation and Entry Form.

The deadline for receiving submissions is: Wednesday, April 29, 2020.

Winners will be notified through their school's administration.

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