How To Enter

Every year at the Narragansett Tribe's Elders' Day, the Silver Cloud Seniors, in partnership with the Tomaquag Museum, holds an art contest for tribal youth.  This art contest is open to all Narragansett tribal youth grades K-12.  Each youth may submit one piece in any medium from traditional to contemporary that expresses their Narragansett identity and community.  Beadwork, basketry, weaving, pottery, painting, drawing, collage, photography, wampum work, quillwork, carving, sculpting, etc! Parents may help guide you but you must have completed the work on your own.  All completed submissions are to be dropped off at the Narragansett Senior Center on the appointed drop off date (to be announced next year).  Next year, the submission forms below will be available to download.  We encourage you to prepare now for next year's submissions!  Visit with tribal elders and local indigenous artists in your community to learn more and hone your skills.  Visit the Tomaquag Museum and participate in our community workshops and programs.  Remember, practice makes perfect so keep creating!

Enter next year!
