After receiving over 1,600 submissions nationwide, we couldn’t be more excited to announce the 2023 ESS Art Contest winners! We asked K-12 students to create original artwork representing the theme: “If you could take a school field trip anywhere, where would you go?”
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 based on the highest average scores from the judges. Each winning student across four grade groups (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12) received a $500 gift card, a custom ESS Moleskine sketchpad, plus $500 for their school.
Without further ado, we’re pleased to announce the winners of the 2023 ESS Art Contest:
9-12 Grade Level Winner: Sherry Yang
6-8 Grade Level Winner: Alice Lim
3-5 Grade Level Winner: Jacob Li
K-2 Grade Level Winner: Bryce Cao
Congratulations to all winners of the 2023 ESS Art Contest!
