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. An "Artist of the Year" also will be selected from among the first place winners for the Best of Show and receive an additional $100.
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 2017-2018 school year is eligible.
"We are proud to be a part of recognizing and showcasing the artistic talents of our youth," said Mark Arnold, CEO of Jay County REMC.
The 2019 wall calendar will be available at our office and other participating Indiana electric cooperatives in early autumn 2018.
