This Call for Art is open to all students (Kindergarten through 12th grade) who are residents of Hopkinton.

The Theme

We want to celebrate the heart, courage, and sweat that runners exemplify each year when they give this race their all – running as best and as fast as they can – for 26.2 miles!

Edward Bloom, the production’s protagonist, conveys that “being a hero” means more than adventure. It means, in his larger-than-life way, standing up for, helping out, and loving others along life’s bold journey. As Edward says, “The best part of an adventure is the people you meet!”
