Kid's art contests have gone from the classroom, to the big time, with hefty cash prizes! The opportunity can be a game changer for the winners’ future. Donna Ruko has three awesome art contests that can jumpstart your career.

1.  Vans Custom Culture Shoe Design Contest

Custom culture is a national high-school art competition that gives your kids the chance to win $50,000 for their school's art program, by designing custom Vans. Thousands of applicants are narrowed down to fifty by Vans, and then the public votes to select the top five. This year Laguna College of Art and Design will award scholarships to one student from each of the schools that make it to the top five! That could mean over $125,000 for their college education!

2.  Blizzard Entertainment Student Art Contest

Blizzard is responsible for some of the world's biggest games like, Diablo and World of Warcraft. Each year college students can submit their own, original character drawing. The winner receives a trip to the Blizzard headquarters in Irvine, California, to be mentored by a senior blizzard artist. They also leave with a gift bag worth around $2,500 in Blizzard gear!

3.  Toyota Dream Car Art Contest

This one is perfect in helping children realize the importance of having dreams by drawing their imaginative ideas for cars. This car art contest invites students from all different age ranges from around the globe, to present their big ideas to a world-wide audience. Working with these artists, Toyota hopes to create a better future. The winners are also invited to the Toyota headquarters in Japan where they can observe and interact with cutting-edge technology!
