Students: Enter city’s digital art contest

Thursday, November 3, 2022 by Tai Moses

The third annual Digital Inclusion Youth Art Contest has opened to Austin students ages 10-18 “to show us how they see a world where everyone can harness the power of a fast internet connection,” according to the news release. Rondella Hawkins, who oversees telecommunications and regulatory affairs for the city, said the contest aims “to draw attention to the fact that there are still too many families and residents without the ability to access and afford high-speed internet. We are asking Austin students to paint a picture of what the future, the near future we hope, looks like with everyone having the same digital tools to access and use a high-speed internet connection for work or fun.” The top three entries win prize money as well as the chance to have their artwork shown in city spaces. The contest deadline is Tuesday, Nov. 22, at 11:59 p.m. Find more details, contest rules and entry info here.
