Austin Council Member Mackenzie Kelly Holds “I Love District 6” Art Contest

A Westwood graduate and parent, Council Member Mackenzie Kelly completes most of her work from her office on Anderson Mill Road. She is currently hosting an art contest in order to showcase the talent of Austin area students.

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, Austin Council Member Mackenzie Kelly, a Westwood graduate and parent, is hosting the “I Love District Six” art contest for 1st-12th grade students in the Austin area.

Students may submit their art to the contest using the official contest Google Form by Sunday, March 10, at 11:59 p.m., or they may drop it off at the District 6 Council Office at 1401 Anderson Mill Road by appointment or mail it to City Hall using instructions in the contest Google Form.

“This art contest serves as a platform to exhibit the exceptional talent of the children in District 6, as well as the distinctiveness and beauty of our community,” Council Member Kelly said in a statement to the Horizon. “I encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity and enjoy the experience to the fullest.”

According to contest rules, participants may use any medium of their choice, such as drawing, painting, sculpture, or collage, as long as the artwork is original and created solely by the participant.

“The District 6 Council Office will display all winning artwork, giving it the recognition it deserves,” Council Member Kelly said in the initial press release. “To ensure fairness and provide equal opportunities for all participants, there will be one winner for every grade.”

In addition to having winning artwork displayed at the District 6 Council Office on Anderson Mill road, students have the opportunity to win an exclusive tour of Austin City Hall by Council Member Kelly.

District 6 encompasses most of the Northwest Austin area, including all of the Westwood feeder pattern except for the Caraway Elementary area, which is served by District 10. However, being a District 6 resident is not a requirement for submitting to the contest.

More information on the contest can be found through the “I LOVE DISTRICT 6” press release or on the District 6 website.
