What: Georgia students only have until April 16 to enter the second annual Young Lungs at Work art competition, guided by the theme “Act Now for Clean Air.” K-12 students are invited to create authentic comic strips and videos that illustrate the positive impact that actions such as riding the bus, turning off an idling car engine or carpooling to school with a friend can have on Georgia’s air quality.
Elementary students will compete in a comic strip contest. Middle and high school students will compete, separately, in a video contest. All winning entries will be featured on The Clean Air Campaign’s website, social media channels and printed materials — showing off the winner’s talent to tens of thousands of Georgians! Donations will also be made to each winner’s school science, environmental, or art program.
Why: Air pollution affects everyone’s health, especially children, so help Georgia kids breathe easier.
Who: The Clean Air Campaign is a not-for-profit organization that empowers Georgia’s students, parents and teachers to play a positive role in reducing traffic and cleaning the air through a multi-faceted education program reaching elementary, middle and high schools.
When: The deadline to submit entries for the 2012 Young Lungs at Work art competition is Monday, April 16.
Registration: Interested teachers, parents and students are encouraged to visit CleanAirCampaign.org to learn about entry requirements and additional contest details.
