First ever art festival
and calendar

180 youth, from Jackson, Nebraska, to Lake City, Iowa; Boone to Hospers, Iowa, created and submitted their visual art entries.  Our esteemed Siouxland artists evaluated the students’ artwork based upon creativity, originality, theme, and excellence.

Over 500 individuals viewed their artwork.


In response to your feedback, Siouxland Catholic Radio collaborated with Artisan Press to create our First Ever Youth Art Festival Calendar.

The 1st place, Curator's, and Viewers' Choice winners (see below) will be featured each month in our calendar, starting this December.

1,000 calendars will be distributed free of charge to the students, sponsors, and the community this October!  

 
The calendars NOT a fundraiser! They are a celebration of our students' artistic excellence and their faith!
