"Our Island, Our Future"
Earth Week Poster Contest Details
The Guam Environmental Protection Agency and the Guam Watershed Planning Committee are proud to announce the Earth Week 2004 Poster Contest. This yearıs theme is "Our Island. Our Future." ("I Isla-ta. I Lina'lå-ta.") All students in grades 1 through 12 are invited to participate. Artwork should reflect pride and stewardship of the island's environment, the connection between a healthy environment and a healthy economy, and emphasize the community working together to ensure a sustainable future for Guam. Posters could depict a "vision for a sustainable future" for Guam.
As a new feature this year, the contest will also be open to college-level artists attending the University of Guam or Guam Community College.
Artwork can be of any medium, such as acrylic, crayon, ink, pastels, etc., and can be of any size up to 18" x 24". The student's name, address, home phone number, e-mail address, grade, school, and the teacher's name and phone number must be printed on the back of each piece. A brief descriptive statement should also be attached to the back of the piece. We will accept only one submission per student. Artwork must be submitted to the Guam Environmental Protection Agency Main Office, 17-3304 Mariner Avenue, Tiyan (across from the Department of Revenue and Taxation; call 475-1658 for directions) by 5 p.m. Monday, April 5, 2004.
Judges will select 12 winners (one winner from each grade level) and several "honorable mention" posters. College-level entries will be judged separately. Winning submissions may be incorporated into a 2005 calendar to be distributed throughout the island or used on posters or other promotional materials. Winners will be announced during Earth Week 2004 (April 17-24).
All submissions will become property of the Guam Environmental Protection Agency. Winners and their parents may have to sign a release on their artwork. By submitting artwork for this contest, entrants and/or their parents or guardians voluntarily release all claims of copyright or ownership for any materials submitted.
