Fall '23 Art Contest Website Banner (2).png
To Be Honest is a program of Momentum for Health.


  • The contest is open to all young adults aged 14 to 25 who currently live in Santa Clara County.

  • All art submitted to the contest must be original and created with the sole intent to submit to this contest.

  • Only one piece of artwork per artist will be accepted.

  • Art will be separated into four categories: 2D, 3D, 4D art and Short films. All art forms are accepted.

  • Each category will have a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner. Winners will receive a $300, $200 or $100 art supply or new media (photo/video/digital art) gift card.

  • Pieces are judged by a panel of 8 passionate community members on originality (8 points), creativity (12 points) and how the piece was inspired by the theme (20 points).

  • The theme, "A love letter to myself" should be the inspiration for each piece. This is a time for you to look yourself in the mirror and name the things you love about yourself! As humans, we tend to focus on our negative qualities, yet we each have so much to offer our friends, family and the world! Dig deep to discover the unique aspects of yourself that you love and share them with us through your preferred art form.


We asked each member of our judges panel to tell us how art and mental health are connected!


The To Be Honest Art Contest accepts ALL forms of art. Here are a few examples of the types of art you can create by category:

  • 2D Art: drawings, paintings, watercolor, mixed media, and poetry
