The City of Pittsfield is pleased to announce its virtual spring art contest open to city youth and adults.

The contest is being held in lieu of the city’s annual Eggstravaganza Egg Scramble which will not be held this year due to ongoing COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

The contest features a coloring category with two separate submissions for youth in Pre-K and K-2 grades. The contest will also accept original art submissions in the following three categories: grades 3-6, teens, and adults (18 and older). Entries for each contest will be accepted now through Sunday, March 28.
