Do you know any students who likes challenges or needs to be challenged? Contests are a great way to get students to display their gifts to a larger arena.

Here are 7 contests that are currently open this school year that your students can enter. Because of the young ages, most will need parental permission. The categories range from art to science. Click on the links or images to take you to the official websites.

You know what they say… “You have to be in it to win it!”
