This art competition is offered to students from Madison County, Ohio slated to complete their high school education in the same academic year they are competing.

Our award commemorates the life of Kurt Lattimer, an amazing artist who left us too soon. The hope is this award will somehow keep his spirit alive in the hearts of many aspiring artists, something Kurt would be very proud of!

Our community has many young, gifted artists —skilled and novice— who deserve the opportunity to showcase their unique talents. We hope that this contest will challenge and inspire our youth to continue to cultivate and share their talent, as well as promote the arts in Madison County for generations to come.

We are delighted to share that we are now partnering with the Madison County Arts Council and plan to announce our yearly winners during their Young Artist Showcase, which is held annually in January.
