Leadership Burbank Class of 2010 and the Burbank Arts Education foundation are looking for entries in a visual-arts contest in preparation for the city’s upcoming centennial celebration.

Entrants are encouraged to display their civic pride by reminiscing about the past, capturing the present, or envisioning the future of Burbank through visual art and photography.


The Leadership Burbank Art Contest accepts one entry per person in the form of either visual arts or photography. Entries will be accepted in the following divisions: Kindergarten through Grade 4, Grades 5 to 8, Grades 9 to 12 and Adults.

Artwork and completed entry forms will be accepted via mail or delivery Monday through April 1. All winners will be notified by April 15.

Prizes are $100 for first place, $75 for second and $50 for third for each age-level category. In addition to cash prizes, the winning artwork will be “on tour,” displaying first at the Downtown Burbank Arts Festival April 24 and 25, then traveling to the Main Branch of the Burbank Public Library throughout May and then at the Burbank Airport in June.

The city of Burbank Park, Recreation and Community Services Department is seeking nominees for induction into the Burbank Athletic Federation Walk of Fame. The Walk of Fame was established to acknowledge the contributions of athletes, coaches, volunteers and staff members who have achieved high standards and shown dedication and commitment to the Department.

The tribute highlights individuals who, in their roles as participants, volunteers or professional staff, have furthered the excellence of the city’s organized sports programs. Inductees are permanently honored with their names chiseled on individual bricks that adorn a walkway behind diamond number two at Izay Park. The department will honor inductees at a ceremony in October.

The Criteria Committee will consider those individuals who began their involvement with city of Burbank programs in 1980 or earlier, although they could still be involved more recently. To contribute a nomination, individual needs to fill out an application completely, including accurate supporting information and submit it by March 26.
