What is the Project EverGreen/Birds & Blooms magazine Art of Green Spaces Poster Contest?
The poster contest sponsored by Project EverGreen and Birds & Blooms magazine, a Reader’s Digest publication, is targeting students in kindergarten through 12th grade to create a poster that exemplifies their artistic skills while describing what “green spaces” means to them.
What are the artwork guidelines?
Students may use any art supplies to create their poster, which must be created on 11” x 17” paper. The rest is up to the student to answer one question: what do green spaces mean to you?
How are the winning entries chosen?
The entrants will be divided into four grade levels and judged separately by a panel of art teachers selected by Project EverGreen. The grade levels are: kindergarten through second grade; third grade through sixth grade; seventh grade through ninth grade; and 10th grade through 12th grade. Judges will evaluate the artwork based on the following criteria: 60 percent for originality and 40 percent for a positive message about green spaces.
