Farnsworth Mears 

Art Contest

2023 Helen Mears art contest winners

Implemented at the GFWC-WI club, district, and state levels, this annual juried art contest for 7th and 8th grade public, private, and home-schooled students is unique to GFWC-WI. 

The contest began in 1927 to honor the memory of this great Oshkosh-born sculptor to encourage artistic talent, and to recognize the achievement of student artists.

Our contest winners are entered into the District and State competitions.  They are typically honored at our May awards ceremony.
