KDHE seeks students' environmentally minded artwork for calendar contest

Students passionate about art and the environment might want to consider the Kansas Department of Health and Environment’s annual Kansas Don’t Spoil It calendar contest.

Each year students ranging from kindergartners to high school seniors enter artwork depicting good environmental practices as a way to preserve the beauty and natural resources of Kansas. A winner from each grade is selected.

As part of the contest, students are encouraged to create a drawing or painting about composting, recycling, resource conservation, proper waste disposal and other green-minded activities.

Contest guidelines include:

Artwork must be submitted on 8.5 by 11 inch paper in landscape orientation.

Copyrighted materials such as comic strip characters can not be published.

Team mascots, such as the Jayhawk, can not be used.

The first place winners from the previous two years can not participate.

Entries can be set to Kansas Don’t Spoil It, KDHE—BWM, 1000 SW Jackson, Suite 320, Topeka, KS 66612-1366.

The post mark deadline to submit the artwork is Sept. 30. The winners will be featured in the 2012 calendar. For more information go to kansasdontspoilit.com.
