At the Depot Art Center



The Crane-inspired Creative Arts Scholarship Contest is an annual event sponsored by Colorado Crane Conservation Coalition Inc. and open to all high school seniors in Routt and Moffat counties. This contest seeks to both raise awareness of Sandhill Cranes and to encourage the arts among the younger generation.

The 2021 contest offers three categories of art:
Literary Arts. A non-fictional essay or fictional story of 750-1,500 words or a group of three poems.
Visual Arts. A painting, sketch, photograph or digital art..
Performing Arts. A song, dance, musical composition or skit lasting 2–5 minutes.
First-place winner each category receives a $2,000 scholarship. The second-place winner in each category receives a $1,000 scholarship. An honorable mention winner from any of the categories receives a $1,000 scholarship. The scholarship awards are contingent on the winner’s acceptance into a continuing education institution. Colorado Crane Conservation Coalition, Inc. thanks our generous donor, Gail Jensen, for making these scholarships possible.
The show will exhibit through April with an opening reception on April 2nd from 5pm–8pm. Masks are required to attend.
