Thank you for your interest in the Linoleum Block Printing Contest, unfortunately we have decided to discontinue the contest based on severely dwindling student participation.
Blick remains dedicated to promoting art education and the accomplishments of students and we continually review and redirect our efforts so that we can do so most effectively. Specifically, we are considering a revised student contest to launch in 2014 that would have greater appeal and accessibility by students and teachers. So please know that we are simply in transition at this time.
Additionally, Blick is quite committed as a significant sponsor of The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, one of the oldest and most prestigious award and recognition program for creative teenagers. Details of this program are available at www.artandwriting.org and we invite you to review and consider adopting this within your program as a worthy challenge and recognition for your students—and one that accepts a multitude of media.
Thank you for your customer support through the years, please feel free to contact us with any questions.
