Poster Design Competition for High School Seniors Proclaims 'Life is Better With Art In It'

/PRNewswire/ -- What would life be like if you walked into a museum and there were no pictures? Or if you visited a school, and there were no drawings on the wall? Art gives life depth, color, texture and joy.

To recognize the importance that art plays in everyone's lives, The Art Institutes and Americans for the Arts announce the annual Poster Design Competition for high school seniors illustrating the theme "Life is Better with Art In It."

Students with an interest in graphic design are eligible to win a scholarship worth $25,000 to study at one of The Art Institutes schools.

According to John Mazzoni, President of The Art Institutes, "High school seniors interested in a creative arts education may not be sure where their talents may lead. We are excited about offering this national graphic design competition and view it as a unique opportunity to encourage, recognize and reward talented artists who want to further their education in an evolving field that may lead to a fulfilling career in the industry."

Co-sponsor for the national Poster Design Competition, Americans for the Arts, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and advocating for arts in schools. "Art programs in many schools across the country are often tragically on the chopping block when it becomes necessary to trim budget," says Robert Lynch, CEO of Americans for the Arts. "Our partnership in this competition is aimed at raising awareness of the importance that art plays in the lives of children of all ages."

Deadline for entries is February 6, 2009. Selection and notification of a national winner will be made by May 15, 2009.
