2014 Eco-Art Contest Entries Requested
The Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection (DEP) announces the opening of the nomination period and request entries for the 2013-14 Eco-Art Contest, which is open to Kentucky high school students. The department envisions a healthy and productive Commonwealth with balanced stewardship of the land, air and water. We envision a Commonwealth where future generations enjoy an environment as good as or better than the present. The Eco-Art Contest is another way DEP supports its mission by encouraging Kentucky students to express their views on conservation, environmental protection and pollution prevention through various works of art. All nominations are due electronically by midnight on Feb. 28, 2014.
Note: Due to the number of snow days most schools have had to take this winter, the deadline has been extended to midnight on March 14, 2014.
Award winners will receive the following:
- Each winning artwork will be displayed in the DEP Training Center.
- 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
