DSHS Annual Art Contest Celebrates Child Support Awareness Month in August


OLYMPIA — Gov. Jay Inslee has  proclaimed August as Child Support Awareness Month. In recognition of this, the Department of Social and Health Services’ (DSHS) Division of Child Support is soliciting entries to its annual art contest.

“Child support provides the necessary means that many Washington state families rely on in order to help children realize their dreams and become future leaders,” the release from DSHS said.

Children through age 17 are invited to submit artwork and/or photography illustrating an answer to the question, “How will you change the world?”

Submissions are accepted through Aug. 15, and should be emailed in high-resolution JPG format to dcscontests@dshs.wa.gov.

Selected artwork will be featured in a 2023 calendar made available free-of-charge later this fall at Division of Child Support offices, the release stated.
