For the second year in a row, Baltimore Curriculum Project (BCP) sponsored a student art contest for our upcoming holiday card that will be sent to BCP donors and supporters. The contest provides an opportunity for our students to showcase their artistic talents and creativity. 

The contest was open to all BCP students from Kindergarten to 8th grade. BCP encouraged everyone to participate and showcase their artistic skills. The aim was to foster a sense of creativity and self-expression among our students.

BCP staff and board members eagerly participated as judges, carefully evaluating each entry. Their task was to select their top three favorites based on artistic merit, creativity, and adherence to the holiday theme.

“It has been immensely enjoyable being able to witness the creativity of our students through this project.”

Mike Niccoloni

Co-Chair, BCP Board of Directors
