The purpose of this contest is to encourage K-12 students in America to learn and share essential knowledge about COVID-19 such as how we can protect individuals and their family members from being infected by coronavirus. Our young artists were very creative in producing COVID-19 educational content using digital media and in promoting this content on social media. We are very satisfied, grateful and proud of the work from our young artists! As you may have seen, many of them are very impressive!
