Pizza pARTy Art Contest

The Schooltime Series Pizza pARTy Art Contest!

New Dions LogoWe all want to bring out the best in children and recognize each child’s individual strengths. That’s exactly what the arts do.  When your students create their own piece of art after seeing a performance, it anchors the experience and encourages students to build on it. They draw moments that stood out to them. This expresses their emotions and promotes problem-solving and nonverbal communication skills. These drawings enforce the value of creativity, self-expression, and the connection between the hand, mind, and heart. It is an opportunity for class discussion and sharing. Dion’s supports this outreach initiative by providing a great prize the kids will recognize—delicious pizza for a classroom of up to 35 people or a homeschool party for up to 20 people at your local Dion’s restaurant.

Submissions from all PreK – 12 students are welcome! Popejoy will select a winner for each Schooltime show from the artwork received by the deadline. Arrangements for pizza pick up, store parties, and for winners who do not have a Dion’s in their town will be coordinated.

In May, we choose a grand prize winner who will be awarded a certificate valued up to $40 for a meal at any Dion’s and four tickets to a Broadway show at Popejoy Hall.


Please do not label elements or characters on the children's art.
Instruct students not to write personal information on the front of their pictures.

Permanently include the following on the back of each submission: 

Mariachi Winner

  • Name of show
  • *Teacher's name and e-mail address. We will contact you about how to best notify the student and his/her family.


Julianna M. | John Adams Middle School

  •  School’s name
  • Grade (If PreK include age)
  • Artist’s name (If you do not want the last name used, just provide a last initial)  

Note: Make sure the writing does not bleed through to the picture side.

*The art submissions are sorted many times in the voting process. Not including the above information permanently on each piece will lead to disqualification.

On the back of the submission or on a separate sheet of paper stapled to the art, tell us what your student did or said about the show experience. Older students may do this themselves. 

Art submissions must be no larger than an 8.5” x 11” sheet of UNLINED paper. Color in the art reproduces more successfully than black/white and is almost always given higher marks by judges.Tree art

Responses from an entire class may be placed into one envelope but still require the individual information above.

Envelopes are available at the performances or you may use your own.
