“The second year of this contest was an even bigger success than we could have imagined. It’s clear that young people have a great interest in yards, parks and green spaces,” says Cindy Code, Project EverGreen executive director.
“It’s clear young people have a great interest in yards, parks and green spaces.”
The contest asked students in kindergarten through 12th grade to create a poster that exemplifies their artistic skills while describing what “green spaces” meant to them. The contest was divided into four grade groups.
“The winning posters were inspirational and really beautiful works of student art,” Code says.
A panel of art teachers from elementary through high school determined the winning posters. First-, second- and third-place artists in each age group will receive an Amazon gift card worth $100, $50 and $25, respectively.
