The contest is easy to enter and a great classroom activity.
Oregon students, grades K-6, are invited to submit original artwork about Oregon agriculture for the contest. We encourage students to use a lot of creativity and color in their artwork.
Every student who submits artwork receives a personalized certificate. The winning 13 students receive a check for $50 and their artwork will be published in the 2013-2014 school-year calendar. Honorable mention artwork is also selected and posted on AITC's web site.
Artwork must be submitted by May 15, 2013. Mail to AITC, 305 Strand Ag Hall, Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR 97331. Judging will be completed by June 1. Calendars will be distributed to teachers on our mailing list in early September.
Each month in the calendar features one student's artwork along with daily agricultural facts.
