EcoART Contest 

The Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection (DEP) announces the opening of the nomination period and requests entries for the 2017-18 EcoART Contest, which is open to Kentucky high school students. The department envisions a healthy and productive Commonwealth with balanced stewardship of the air, water, land and natural habitats. We envision a Commonwealth where future generations enjoy an environment as good as or better than the present. The EcoART Contest is another way DEP supports its mission by encouraging Kentucky students to express their views on air, water, land and natural habitats through various works of art. All nominations are due electronically by midnight on Feb. 16, 2018. 

Award winners will receive the following:

  •  Each winning artwork will be displayed in the DEP Office Building.
  •  A press release will be sent statewide announcing the winners.
  •  An article will be published in Land, Air & Water with photos of the winning artwork and a description of the artists.​
