(ORLEANS) - Indiana's electric cooperatives and their statewide magazine, Electric Consumer, invite Indiana K-12 students to enter the Cooperative Calendar of Student Art Contest.
A first-place artist will be selected for each grade, K-12 and will receive $200. The artwork of each grade level winner will illustrate the cover and the 12 months of the calendar. Up to nine additional artists will earn honorable mention awards and receive $50. These works will appear in a special section of the calendar.
Artwork will be judged on artistic merit, originality, creativity, and its suitability for a wall calendar. Indiana students attending any public or private school or educated at home who is in kindergarten through high school senior during the 2015-2016 school year is eligible.
"We are proud to be a part of recognizing and showcasing the artistic talents of our youth," said Matthew Deaton, General Manager/CEO of Orange County REMC.
The 2017 wall calendar will be available at the offices of participating Indiana electric cooperatives in early autumn 2016.
A complete set of rules, instructions, required entry forms and additional contest information are available visiting ElectricConsumer.org/?p=5327. The entry deadline is March 18, 2016.
