Enter to Win the NYC DOE Energy Conservation Calendar Contest!

For the second year, the NYCDOE is conducting an energy conservation artwork contest. This competition is open to all NYCDOE schools from all grade levels (K-12). Fifteen pieces of original art will be selected that best illustrate how energy can be saved through efficiency and conservation in our schools. The goal of the contest is to create a dialogue and encourage students, teachers, and administrative staff to save energy through art. A twelve month calendar will be produced with two runner ups, a winner for each month of the school year, and a Grand Prize winner for the calendar cover.  Prizes include iPads, Nooks, and a laptop.

The final art work will be selected based on the design's message, subject relevance, and artistic originality.
