CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Citadel Mall is inviting high school senior student artists to submit their ideas for a mural with a scholarship as the prize.

The mural will be displayed on a large wall in the Belk wing of the Mall, according to its website.

One design will be selected and that student will receive a $2,500 scholarship.

High school senior artists will complete the artwork on the barricade wall on the Belk wing during the month of November. That wall is approximately 17 feet long and 10.5 feet tall and is primed in a light gray matte finish ready for paint.

The mall will supply paint and the artist is required to supply brushes.

Specific material requests will be considered but not guaranteed, the website states.

“Citadel Mall will consider the diversity of beliefs, values and general standards of decency of citizens. We reserve the right to refuse entries at our sole discretion,” the website states.

The winning design will be chosen by a panel of Citadel Mall store managers and owners.

Students have until Sept. 30 to submit their designs.
