2022 Program Cover Art Contest

We invite you and your students to participate in a visual design contest hosted by the Northeast Regional Honors Council. NRHC is an organization of students, faculty, and administrators dedicated to the encouragement and support of undergraduate honors learning. Each year, the cover art for our annual 4-day conference program is designed by a student. This is a fantastic way to expand an art portfolio or resumé. For their submission, the winning artist will receive a certificate and a $100 Amazon gift card.
