CRCMC Mask Contest

CRCMC Face Mask Design Challenge

Calling all Montgomery County Youth—create your own design for a face mask. Be creative! What would you like your friends to see on a mask in your school, your neighborhood, at home?

Some of the submitted designs will be featured on our Facebook and Instagram page, and a select few will be printed on real face masks produced by CRCMC! Top prize will receive a $50 gift card.

Let’s have some fun with this!

Submit your design through this form


  1. Designs should reflect or represent Peace or What peace means to the artist
  2. Use bold bright colors that will translate well into a digital scan. Materials like paint and markers work best. If using crayons, apply them thickly and fill in shapes as fully as possible.
  1. Create a digital scan of your design. On your scanner settings, select an output resolution of 300 dpi or higher. (Don’t have a scanner? No problem!

Hold onto your original design and we will reach out to you if it is selected for printing.)

*Note for parents and educators: Face masks can be scary for young children and those who may be experiencing anxiety about themselves, their family, and friends getting ill with COVID-19. Art and creativity can be a great way to talk to youth about difficult subjects and emotions. Designing a face mask together can open up conversation and help children and youth become more comfortable with this personal protective equipment. As prompts for this activity, you might ask your child to think about what they are hopeful for, to imagine themselves as a superhero, or to think of silly faces that make them happy. Parents, family members, school staff, and other trusted adults can play an important role in helping children make sense of what they hear about public health concerns in a way that is honest, accurate, and minimizes anxiety or fear. CDC has created guidance to help adults have conversations with children about COVID-19 and ways they can avoid getting and spreading the disease.
