Be Different. Be Awesome.

Calling all kid artists connected to the Duke Cleft and Craniofacial Team!

We want to see your work and give you the chance to have it displayed in the Duke Children’s Health Center to show how awesome you and your art can be. This is a great opportunity to highlight patients of the Duke team while carrying out our vision of creating a world where all barriers associated with cleft and craniofacial conditions are eliminated and children can achieve their full potential.

What are we looking for?

We want you to bring out all of your creative ideas and find a way to show the world that being different is awesome through your art.

You could submit almost any art that speaks to the theme of “Be Different. Be Awesome.” This could be a self-portrait of you doing something amazing, it could be something more abstract that highlights how differences are strengths, or it could be a picture of someone else who inspires you to do your best regardless of what the circumstances are in life.  All entries must have a title that relates the artwork to how being different is awesome.

Entries must be created on 8.5” x 11” paper and submitted as outlined below.  If selected, original artwork must be mailed to our committee.

Who is eligible?

This is an opportunity for kids 21 years old and younger to submit original art for showcase.  This will be open to all patients of the Duke Cleft and Craniofacial Team.

Representatives from Smile Together and the Duke Cleft and Craniofacial Team will review submissions and select the top submissions to be displayed in the Duke Children’s Health Center.
