Attention artists of all ages!

The City of Pittsfield has announced 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 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 28th.

Each winner will receive a cash prize and will also be featured on the Pittsfield Parks and Recreation Facebook page on Friday, April 2nd. The prizes are generously sponsored by Greylock Federal Credit Union.
