White House Student Art Competition

White House SAC

The White House is an iconic, enduring symbol of the United States. More than just a home for the president, this celebrated building has been shaped by countless people including first families, enslaved workers, innovative staff, and the American public. When First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy founded the White House Historical Association (WHHA) in 1961, she did so to protect, preserve, and provide public access to the White House as beacon of democracy and the American story.

To honor the vision of Mrs. Kennedy and celebrate the Association’s 60th anniversary, WHHA is sponsoring a student art competition with the theme “The White House: An American Story,” seeking submissions from students across the nation that depict and reflect the White House, its collection, and its diverse history.

The competition is open for submissions from February 1, 2021 to May 7, 2021 and will have three grade-level categories: grades K through 3, grades 4 through 8, and grades 9 through 12. First place, second place, and third place cash prizes will be awarded for each grade level category. A panel of three judges will evaluate the submissions and winners will be announced in July 2021 as part of the White House Historical Association’s annual celebration of Mrs. Kennedy’s birthday.

American students who are US citizens attending schools overseas are eligible to enter the competition.
