Remember when we used to give our kiddo’s a box of chalk and scooted them outside to terrorize the sidewalks with their artistic endeavors, hoping they would find their inner Picasso? Well, they can finally reap the rewards of their chalky-fingered talents with one of three scholarships being presented by the Lakeside Arts Foundation this April at Wayne Ferguson Plaza in Lewisville.

Lakeside Arts Foundation invites Lewisville ISD High School Juniors and Seniors, (including home-schooled) intending to major in any arts-related field, to participate in Scholarship Art Contest at Chalk This Way to earn one of three possible scholarships. Contestants will be given a 6 x 6 foot area of concrete and professional quality chalk, to create a work of art, in six hours. The First Place scholarship is $1,200, Second Place is $700 and Third Place is $500.
