As part of the winners’ prizes for our 2017 ‘Draw Outside of the Box‘ contest, a pizza party was held at King Middle School in our hometown of Portland, Maine. This year, King was home to all three winning designs!

The fact that the students were able to celebrate together, with their classmates and teachers, was representative of the collective nature of this project and a testament to the school’s involvement in the contest.

Along with the pizza party, all three winners — Mali, Mattea, and Lilah received an OTTO gift card, various prizes from Artist & Craftsman Supply, an OTTO t-shirt, and an OTTO beanie.

2nd Place Winner, Mattea, poses with her prizes

The first place contestant, Mali, will have her design printed on thousands of pizza boxes and distributed to OTTO locations throughout New England. We anticipate the boxes to be in-store in the coming weeks!

In recognition of Mali’s first-place design and art teacher Mary Wellahan’s dedication to her students, the King Middle School Art Department received a $250 gift card from Artist & Craftsman Supply and a $1000 check in support of art education from OTTO.

We decided it was only fitting to give the donation in the form of a giant check because hey, who doesn’t want to get a giant check? The students and teachers were as excited to receive it as we were to present it!

We would like to congratulate all of the talented artists and designers who participated in our second ‘Draw Outside the Box’ contest, as well as thank all teachers, family, and friends that supported so many hard-working and diligent students all across New England!
