2022 Head Start Gear Zone Art Contest

Head Start Gear Zone has been proud to present various deigns and design campaigns to our Early Head Start a Head Start staff, but now we want to give them the opportunity to tell us what they want to see in our apparel and what Head Start really means to them through art. We all know someone who loves to draw/create art, we want to offer them an opportunity to share their art and vision of Head Start with all the agencies in region 9.


The Head Start Art Contest is a unique opportunity for people in our community to show off their talents and for us to offer support around the Region. This opportunity will help elevate those in our community with unique talents to step forward and show us how Head Start helps shape their lives through art. 3 winners will be elected and the design will be used to inaugurate Teacher Appreciation Week in May.
