2024 Belonging and Diversity Art Contest

"Hearts Knit Together in Unity and in Love" —Mosiah 18:21

Submissions accepted in 990 KMBL from February 5, 2024 through April 8, 2024.

The Belonging and Diversity Committee in the College of Family, Home, and Social Sciences is sponsoring its fourth annual art contest to help fulfill its mission to nurture a Zion community based on unity, respect, and charity toward all at BYU.

We hope you will internalize this year's theme of "Hearts Knit Together in Unity and in Love" as you reflect on what it means to you and express those ideas through all forms of art. We look forward to gathering diverse perspectives on the theme.


Contest submissions will be accepted from February 5, 2024–April 8, 2024. Contest rules and submission guidelines are as follows:

  • The artist must be a student in the BYU College of Family, Home, and Social Sciences — whether major, minor, or graduate student.
  • The artwork must be original and signed by the submitter.
  • Submissions can be any form of art.
  • The art must be display-ready (e.g., frame or mount it).
  • The entry may be any medium but must not be larger than 2’ x 3’.
  • All submissions will become the property of the BYU College of Family, Home, and Social Sciences and may be displayed in College buildings.
  • All art should be delivered to 990 KMBL during the submission period of February 5 through April 8, 2024 at 5 p.m. and must be accompanied by a completed submission form.
  • Only one entry per student.

Entries will be judged by a panel of Belonging and Diversity committee members and staff representatives based on aesthetic merit and how well the piece reflects the theme. Awards will be dispersed as follows:

  • First Place: $1000

  • Second Place: $600

  • Third Place: $400

All students in the College are encouraged to participate in this wonderful opportunity to reflect on the idea of fostering a Zion community at BYU. Submitted works will be displayed in the College to demonstrate our commitment to upholding principles of diversity and inclusion.
