The 2013 Fulton County Department of Water Resources calendar will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Clean Water Act with the theme “Water is Worth It.” Students are invited to submit their artwork for consideration in the calendar.
The contest is open to all Fulton County students grades K-12 attending public, private, charter schools, as well as home-schooled students. Students are invited to create bright and colorful art work promoting better water quality and water conservation uses and practices. From the submitted drawings, 13 works will be selected and featured in the 2013 Water Calendar.
The deadline to submit all artwork is Oct. 19.
“Our 2012 calendar has been a great success and we look forward to building on that in 2013,” said Kun Suwanarpa, interim director of Water Resources. “The calendar will serve as a daily reminder of the importance of water in our everyday lives.”
Artwork should be created on letter-sized (8 ½” x 11”) white paper. Art should be landscape (“sideways”) in orientation and should fill the entire page. Only artwork created by hand will be accepted; no computer-generated artwork will be used. All artwork must include a title, and should have the student’s name, grade and school on the back of the page. Students must work on their artwork independently. Submissions will become the property of the Department of Water Resources. Students whose art work is selected will receive a prize and five copies of the calendar to share with family and friends. In addition, the teacher of the student whose drawing is selected for the calendar cover will also receive a prize.
