Los Angeles Department of Water and Power Student Poster Contest

Ages:Elementary, Middle School, High School

Type:Submission

Categories:Art, Environment

Scope:Local

This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

As the nation’s second largest city, Los Angeles uses a lot of water and energy. It’s important that we all work together to conserve these vital resources and protect our planet. So we’re calling on all students to submit original artwork illustrating how everyone can do their part. Prizes will be awarded in grades 4-12, plus teachers of first-place student winners at each grade level will also receive a prize. Winning students and their teachers will also be invited to an awards presentation to be held in May 2018. Participating students must be part of the Times in Education’s “Water, Energy, the Environment and You” program for schools in the Los Angeles region.

Students submit physical posters "illustrating how everyone can do their part." All entries must be created on 8.5" x 11" – 11" x 22" paper or poster board and should not use chipboard or Styrofoam board. No three-dimensional objects may be applied. Students are encouraged to incorporate lettering of their topic in a poster slogan that is applicable to their artwork. Each entry must include illustrations of how Los Angeles can conserve water or energy. Illustrations must promote conservation tips (examples: shorter showers, turning off lights), depict why conservation is so important, and include an original slogan.

Winners will be invited to a Los Angeles Times awards presentation, to take place in May 2018.

A panel of judges from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power will select prizewinners by judging the Artwork based on the following criteria: quality of written headline in support of the theme, quality of the artistic concept, implementation of the Artwork, appropriateness of the Artwork for poster media, and quality of the Artwork in relation to grade level. Entrants agree that all decisions made by the panel of judges relating to any and all issues related to this Contest are final and binding.
