2014 Cover Art Contest
2014 ARS Cover Art Contest

American Recorder Society is having its fourth annual Magazine Cover Art Contest. The artwork of the contest winner will appear on the cover of American Recorder Society’s December 2014 issue of American Summer 2013 AR coverRecorder magazine.

The contest is open to students in Grades 3-8 and the artist must show the recorder (the musical instrument) in some way. Since ARS is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2014, we especially welcome entries using one of these themes:
  1. Happy Birthday! ARS is 75 in 2014
  2. The Recorder:  Past, Present and Future
  3. The Recorder of the Future

The contest entries must be postmarked by January 17, 2014.


In our 2013 contest, entries were received from eighteen different schools in Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania and South Carolina. From the 314 pieces of art work submitted, finalists were chosen by a panel of art judges and the winners were selected by the ARS board of directors at their March board meeting in St. Louis.

The winner of the Student Cover Art Contest was Jaimin Keliiho’omalu, an 8th grader from Kapolei Middle School in Kapolei, Hawaii. Jaimin's winning artwork (shown at right) was featured on the front cover of the Fall 2013 (Sept) American Recorder magazine. His teacher is Daryle Mishina.
