LAKEWOOD, Wash. – The City of Lakewood has published a gallery of submissions to its 25th Anniversary Art Contest.
2021 marks the 25th anniversary of the incorporation of the City of Lakewood. The City adopted a theme of “commUNITY” to commemorate the quarter-century milestone. The theme is an acknowledgement of the importance of togetherness after a year defined by social distancing.
The contest was judged by four categories: Grades 1-4, Grades 5-8, Grades 9-12, and an Adult Category.

The event was organized by the Lakewood Arts Commission and supported by the sponsorship of Twin Star Credit Union, Pierce County Library, the Lakewood Chamber, and Clover Park School District.
