Color Maryland Green - Art Contest

Sunday, January 20, 2013 - 10:31am

We are encouraging local artists to get out and support this State initiative.

COLOR MARYLAND GREEN is an art and poetry contest designed to inspire Maryland students to enjoy and respect the State’s great outdoors and natural resources. Through the creative use of poetry, art and digital tools, students will express their appreciation for the outdoors and Maryland’s treasured natural resources.

All Maryland students, grades K-12, are eligible to participate -- one entry per student only, please. (Submissions from children of Maryland Department of Natural Resources employees will NOT be eligible for prizes).

Entries may be submitted individually or in bundles through the classroom.

Entries will be judged by age group categories and one video category:

  • Category I: K – 2nd Grade
  • Category II: 3rd -6th Grade
  • Category III: 7th-9th Grade
  • Category IV: 10th-12th Grade
  • Category V: Video (all ages)

Prizes will be awarded for best poetry, best photo and best art (paintings & drawings) in each category. Videos will have one award for best overall.

Deadline for entries is March 1, 2013. Winners will be announced shortly thereafter.
