American Studies Flag Contest: Win $100 Gift Card

Enter the American Studies Department Art Contest: The Flag Project, Win a $100 Amazon Gift Card

Hope, freedom, patriotism, justice? What does the flag mean to you?

Today, maybe more than ever, there is a lot of interest in the history and symbolism of the American flag.

The American Studies Program in the College of Humanities & Social Sciences invites students to think about how patriotism, symbolism, history, conflict and unity can be invoked and manifested by the image of the American flag.

Rowan students are invited to submit multimedia artistic and creative projects that represent what the American flags means to them. Students are especially encouraged to submit entries that consider the flag from diverse viewpoints. Submissions in paint, ink, fabric, Photoshop, video or any other medium will be accepted.

The winning entry will be high-quality, thought-provoking, and will be designed to generate discussion but not be intentionally offensive.

The contest is open to all current Rowan University students. Entries must be original artwork, though it may have been created at an earlier date. Entries will be judged by a panel of American Studies faculty.

The winner will receive a $100 Amazon Gift Card.

Submit entries to Dr. Katherine Turner, at turnerk@rowan.edu. Physical entries can be submitted via photograph and video.

The entry deadline is Friday, Nov. 20. View the attached flyer for more information and details.
