2022 ESS Art Contest Winners

After receiving over 1500 submissions throughout the country, we couldn’t be more excited to announce the winners of the 2022 ESS Art Contest!  We asked K-12 students to create original artwork representing the theme: “What would it be like to go to a school made of candy?” 

Seven ESS judges scored each submission based on artistic and technical skill, originality, adherence to theme and requirements, unique approach, and creativity of title. Five finalists were selected from each grade group (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12) based on the highest average scores from the judges.

The finalists’ artwork was then posted on ESS Facebook and Instagram pages, and we asked the public to help us select the winners by voting for their favorite pieces. After a week of voting, we combined the judge’s scores with social media likes to determine this year’s winners.

Without further ado, we’re pleased to announce the winners of the 2022 ESS Art Contest:

9-12 Grade Level Winner: Mia Gonzalez


6-8 Grade Level Winner: Bobby Chen

3-5 Grade Level Winner: Priscilla Hsieh

K-2 Grade Level Winner: Kyle Wang

Congratulations to all winners of the 2022 ESS Art Contest!
