Kids' English Idiom Art Contest 2012


Thank you to all of the participants who sent in their beautiful works of art for this year's Kids' English Idiom Art Contest! Each and every one of you did a great job. You chose interesting English idioms and illustrated them very well! Well done!

Accordingly, it was a difficult task to choose three winning compositions among so many wonderful compositions. This year's contest was judged by the English Idioms Daily Blog in conjunction with artist and art instructor Antje Naumann who offers children's art courses in Leipzig, Germany through the Wiesbadener Freie Kunstschule. Many thanks to Antje for taking the time to evaluate all of the beautiful compositions!

There is not enough room here to show all of the lovely submissions that were received; but, below, you will find the
three prize winning compositions as well as a random sampling of the extraordinary works of art done by the young artists who took part in this year's contest!
