Shelby County students, grab your paints, brushes, colored pencils, crayons, glue, glitter and even computers! It’s time to enter the 2022 MLGW Student Poster Contest. The utility is once again sponsoring its annual Student Art Poster Contest for Shelby County school children in grades K-12. The theme? Disaster Preparedness.
The contest is designed to give all students the opportunity to think about disaster preparedness and share their talents and ideas. The students’ artwork will help to increase awareness about the importance of always being prepared for the unexpected and of being safe by following the advice of disaster preparedness Power League Hero, “Crisis Crusher.”
The art entries will be judged on their ability to communicate the theme clearly and creatively, “Crisis Crusher – The art of being prepared!”
Entries will be judged in four categories: Elementary school (grades K-2), elementary school (grades 3-5), middle school (grades 6-8) and high school (grades 9-12). Each category winner and also each winner’s teacher will receive a $125 award.
All children in grades K-12, attending ANY Shelby County school and even home schooling, are eligible. All entries must be submitted no later than 4 p.m., Friday, December 16, 2022. For general rules, specific art form rules, submission process, judging and awards, please visit mlgw.com/artcontest.
