25th Annual Creative Expression Competition

The City of Chandler's 2021 Creative Expression Competition is focusing on Culture and Equity Across Time. They want this theme to give your students a chance to process this year's events in a creative, healthy and productive way; it's an opportunity for their voices to be heard. The three types of entries are writing, visual art and video. If you think your students would be interested in participating in this year's Creative Expression Competition to promote unity and diversity within our community, encourage them to enter!
