Teens! We invite you to participate in our Fourth Annual Teen Art Contest! This year's contest is based on the 2023 Longwood Gardens Community Read theme of how food is a connector of people—especially for special moments—and how food connects to the world of plants and gardening. All artwork should be inspired by this theme. This contest is open to students in 6th-12th grades.
