Student Artists Wanted for Water Conservation Poster Contest

Students in grades K-12 are encouraged to create a poster depicting a water-saving idea, in either slogan form, drawing form, or both.

Posters will be judged by grade level as follows: Division 1 – Kindergarten and 1st grades; Division 2 -2nd and 3rd grades; Division 3 – 4th and 5th grades; Division 4 – 6th through 8th grades; Division 5 – 9th through 12th grades.

A twenty-five-dollar cash prize will be awarded to the county-wide first place winners in each of the five divisions. In addition, a fifty-dollar cash prize will be awarded to each division winner’s school to be used for art supplies, as well as a plaque displaying the winning artwork.

All artworks must be received by 5:00pm, Friday, February 25, 2022. Mail or deliver submissions to 3600 W Sovereign Path, Suite 202, Lecanto, FL 34461. For contest guidelines, call (352) 527-7684.
