2015 Cooperative Calendar Art Contest
Indiana students are encouraged to “be part of a gallery of art” by submitting entries for the 2015 Co-op Calendar Art Contest sponsored by Henry County REMC and Electric Consumer. The contest deadline is Friday, Mar. 21, 2014.
The electric cooperatives’ student art contest is unusual because the winning works are published in a wall calendar. Along with bringing student artists statewide recognition, the printed calendar serves as a wonderful souvenir. In addition, cash prizes are awarded to 13 first place winners, grades K-12, and nine honorable mention winners.
The current contest is now underway and open to all Indiana students. Winning works will be published in the 2015 calendar. For the contest, each grade is assigned a specific month to depict: first graders have January; second graders have February; third graders do March; and so on. High school seniors finish the calendar by depicting December. Kindergartners are assigned the cover art which can depict any season, subject or event. Students compete only with students in the same grade division.
A complete set of rules and entry form can be found at www.electricconsumer.org, or visit the REMC office located at 201 N. 6th St., New Castle, IN. For questions, call Lara Sullivan at 1-800-248-8413.
