We provide the chalk, you make the art.

Sidewalk Chalk Contest: $100 First Prize

Do you have something to say? Something you want to express, or just share with other people? Join us in the Oak Grove on Wednesday, April 28, for the annual Chalk-on-the-Walk Sidewalk Chalk contest. We'll provide the chalk (and prizes!), and you can make any social, political, or other comment that you want.

Start creating comments at 9:00 a.m.—judging begins at 4:00 p.m. This year the first prize is $100.

Two students working on their sidewalk chalk artwork, one of them smiling at the camera Awards are given for communicating an idea, and all registered IUP students are eligible. Free t-shirts from IUP MarCom for all participants!

“What have you missed? What do you look forward to?” We want to ask you this question, and everyone can join in around the giant chalk IUP logo and help us with the answer. It's been a difficult year for everyone, and we hope you'll take the time to come out and express yourself.

Chalk-on-the-Walk is sponsored by the College of Fine Arts, National Art Education Association, STATIC, and IUP MarCom.
