National Cherry Blossom Festival Student Art Contest 2020
Co-presented with the DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative
Each year, The National Cherry Blossom Festival and DC Collaborative jointly invite grades K-12 students from DC public, public charter, and Japanese schools to participate in the annual Cherry Blossom Festival Student Art Contest. This year the theme was “Home is Where the Blossoms Are”, with a special focus on Friendship. What better way to celebrate the season? The annual Festival commemorates the 1912 gift of over 3,000 cherry blossom trees from then Mayor of Tokyo, Japan Yukio Ozaki to the city of Washington, DC as a gesture of friendship, diplomatic collaboration, and creative international exchange.
The DC Collaborative developed a virtual gallery to showcase the talented DC public and charter school students who participated in this year's contest.
