Financial Empowerment Arts Contest

2023 Financial Empowerment Arts Contest Call for Entries

The Oakland County Treasurer's Office is pleased to continue the annual arts contest in partnership with Oakland Schools, Flagstar Bank, and the Oakland Livingston Human Services Agency.

Oakland County public high school students are invited to submit 2-D and multi-media/video pieces of art related to the importance of financial empowerment. Thanks to the sole financial sponsorship from Flagstar Bank, winners and honorable mentions from each grade will receive significant cash prizes from a prize pool totaling $10,000.

Student entries may include 2-D (drawing, painting, photography, mixed media, and illustration) and video. Entries are judged on creativity, artistic execution, and the incorporation of the financial empowerment theme. For more information on financial empowerment, review the Flagstar flyer.

To qualify for the arts contest, a student in Grades 9-12 must attend a public high school in Oakland County. All entries must be submitted no later than March 17, 2023, at 4:00pm using the submission form below.

A reception for all participants will be held either virtually or in-person depending on public health circumstances the week of April 24, 2023. To submit entries, please use the button below.
