Call for K-12 Artists: The 10th Annual Cool Science Artwork Competition

We are excited to announce the 10th annual Cool Science Artwork Competition. Please share this invitation with parents, teachers, mentors, community members, and students who are interested in the arts and/or sciences. This year’s deadline is January 15, 2022.

Cool Science

Cool Science is a free and public art competition held each fall for all K-12 artists. Cool Science is a collaboration between UMass Lowell, UMass Boston, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, University of Kansas, and Kansas City Art Institute. Last year Cool Science received a National Science Foundation grant that helped it expand the project beyond Massachusetts to Kansas, Missouri, and Southern New Hampshire.

Challenge Questions

This year, we are asking young artists to answer one of the following challenge questions with a visual work of art:

  1. What did you learn about extreme weather and climate that you want to teach adults?
  2. Why is a weakening Polar Vortex causing wild ups and downs in winter temperatures?
  3. How will our lives change as weather becomes more severe?

Competition Winners

During this winter, we will select the best entries for display on public buses in Sep-Nov of 2022. The honorees will be recognized at our art exhibit celebrations next year.
