It is very difficult to see any advantages in subjecting
young children to the mind-set involved in competitions.
It is impossible to do so in art.
The Australian Institute of Art Education has adopted
a national policy on this issue. It includes a number of
alternatives to art competitions, replacing them with
interesting and productive activities of benefit to child,
school and community.
I would be happy to e-mail a copy of the policy to anyone
who's interested.
