Delaware 4-H Equine Art Contest Winners

Delaware 4-H members of all ages recently participated in a statewide Equine Art Contest sponsored by the Delaware 4-H Horse Advisory Committee, a group of volunteer 4-H Equine Project Leaders.   Entries from 30 budding artists were submitted for the contest in the following categories:

  • Drawing- Pastels/Charcoal/Graphite/Colored Pencil (Abstract or Realistic)
  • Drawing- Pen/Ink/Markers/Crayon (Abstract or Realistic)
  • Painting
  • Photography- Color digital or 35 mm film

Entries were divided into age groups for judging. Awards were given to the top six entries in each category and age group as determined by a group of volunteer judges. A Best in Show Champion and Best in Show Reserve Champion overall were also chosen from all of the entries. The artwork has been on display at the Chick’s Saddlery retail store in Harrington, Delaware during the month of May.
