San Diego County students in middle school, high school, and college are invited to enter the 2015 Emerging Artist Contest, hosted by the California Preservation Foundation. Writing, fine art, photography, film, or multimedia entries are all welcome, as long as the entries focus on the history of the artist’s community. Winners are eligible for cash prizes, gift certificates from local businesses, and other awards, as well as being recognized at the 2015 Preservation Conference at the Naval Training Center. At that conference their artwork will be displayed before hundreds of participants. Each age category will have three winners. The entry deadline is Feb. 27. For more information visit
