GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers want to display student artwork at Lambeau Field during the coming season.

The Packers launched a contest to give student artists from grades 6 through college the opportunity to have their work selected and win money for their schools. Three grand prize winners will receive $5,000 donations to their school art programs and an invitation to the Suite Holder Tasting and Artwork Unveiling scheduled for July 19 at Lambeau Field.

The theme is "Your Packers Gameday," in which artists will show what game day means to them through paintings, drawings, prints, digital art, mixed media or collage. Examples would be art showing fans tailgating at Lambeau Field or wearing green and gold in some faraway place, or highlighting the emotions of a close game.

Deadline is May 22.
