2018 Districtwide Student Art and Literary Competition events
April 23, 2018 |
Each year, the League for Innovation in Community College invites its board member colleges to participate in their annual national Student Art Award and Student Literary Award competitions. These two competitions enable community college students to compete with their peers across the US. Initial competitions take place at each board member college/district, with the winners of each local contest moving on to compete at the national level. Winners at the national level receive cash prizes and inclusion in an annual publication. SDCCD is one of just two board colleges in California, providing our students with a unique opportunity to compete nationally with their peers.
