This is the only entry category, and entries must fit properly into this to be eligible.

Winners will be selected by a panel of judges that will evaluate the submissions based on creativity, entertainment value, quality, and reach of awareness. Winners will be selected and notified soon after. Winners will be announced publicly on January 8, 2024.

Winners will be featured on the Spirit of Nevada website and across all social media platforms.

Theme and Inspiration

Our 2023 entry theme, “Heart of the Golden West”, encourages students to showcase the uniqueness, beauty, and history of our great state. Students can share the amazing stories of the inspiring people, places, events, or organizations in Nevada. This can include, but is certainly not limited to, a person who enriches the lives of the community, an inspirational place of natural beauty, an organization making Nevada a better place to live, or even bringing awareness to a social cause that affects the lives of Nevadans.


ALL entries must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Friday, December 29, 2023.

WINNERS will be announced on Monday, January 8, 2024.


FOUR (4) elementary school student winners will be chosen as the best art entries on the year’s theme. Each winner will receive $1,000 and an iPad. The teacher of each winning student will receive a $500 Amazon Gift Card.
