2022 SOLE Art Contest

"What is your favorite Colorado state symbol and why?"

2022 Award Recipients

This year, we had over 400 3rd and 4th grade students submit artwork from all across Colorado! The imagination, creativity and talent was unbelievable! Some of the favorite Colorado state symbols ranged from well-known symbols, such as the state flower and mammal, to not so well known symbols, such as the state tartan and the state soil. Thank you to all of our 2022 participants for such an amazing contest and for making this experience such a success!
