Submit a Face Mask Design

Students - have you ever thought of what it would be like to see your own art or fashion design become famous? Well, here is a chance. The Alaska Children's Trust is looking for a High School Student to design a creative, colorful, thoughtful new face mask. We want to look great while staying safe and healthy. We'd love to see a Lathrop design worn across our state. The deadline for art is November 7. For a design template and more info: You can find more information here: https://www.akafterschool.org/facemaskdesign.
