Sidewalk chalk contest to entertain Santa Clara residents of all ages

Summertime calls for spending time outside, even with all the care and physical space required by COVID-19.

To engage the community, Santa Clara is organizing a sidewalk chalk contest with a “Summer 2020 Santa Clara” theme.

Categories range from those 12 years old and younger, those ages 13-18, and those aged 19 and up.

The community will vote on their favorites, with prizes for each category.

Entries are open from Monday, August 3 through Friday, August 14. To enter, email the artist’s name, title of the work, two photos, and age group to the city’s Park and Recreation Department here.

Entrants must be city residents and should only draw on their own space. Voting will run from August 19 to the 23rd on the city’s Open City Hall site.
