Electric cooperatives host student art contest
Calendar art contest recognizes artistic talents of Hoosier youth

Jasper, Ind. – September 16, 2019

Indiana’s electric cooperatives and their statewide magazine, Indiana Connection, 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 either the cover or one of the 12 months of the calendar. Up to nine additional artists will earn honorable mention awards and will receive $75. These works will appear in a special section of the calendar.

Artwork will be judged on artistic merit, originality, creativity and its suitability for a wall calendar. Indiana public, private or home-schooled students in kindergarten through 12th grade during the 2019-20 school year are eligible.

“We are proud to be a part of recognizing and showcasing the artistic talents of our youth,” said Joe Henson, CEO and General Manager of Dubois Rural Electric Cooperative.

The 2021 wall calendar will be available at the offices of participating Indiana electric cooperatives in autumn 2020.

A complete set of rules, instructions, required entry forms and additional contest information are available visiting indianaconnection.org/for-youth/2021-contest. The entry deadline is March 20, 2020.
