Prizes valued at $75 each will be awarded in two categories: senior division (grades 9 to 12) and junior division (grades 6 to 8).

Works must be available to be included in a free display that will be open to the public from Oct. 19 to Nov. 3 at Main Street Petite Gallery, 213 Main St., Huntington.
