The Partnership for Delaware Estuary has extended the deadline for the Green City, Clean Waters Art Contest. The new deadline for submissions is now March 7, 2014.
The art contest gives students in grades K-12 the opportunity to participate in Green City, Clean Waters by challenging them to create a drawing and/or video showing others how to stop polluted water from entering local storm drains.
The first place winner of each grade group will see their artwork digitally enhanced, enlarged and placed on streets in the City to act as visual reminders that only rain should go down the storm drain (not pollution!). Winning drawings will also be made into advertisements and used on SEPTA buses. Winning videos will be featured on the Partnership for Delaware Estuary, Philadelphia Water Department, and Fairmount Water Works websites. Additionally, winning individuals and teams will have the chance to win gift cards of up to $100 in value, a variety of art supplies for their schools, framed certificates, and a contest calendar featuring their artwork. Teachers of winning students will each receive $50 gift cards.
