Art, Poetry and Essay Contest
The Art, Poetry and Essay Contest is an annual contest open to all students, grades K-12, in Cuyahoga, Ashtabula, Lake, Geauga, Lorain, Medina, Summit, and Portage counties. Students were asked to share their thoughts and feelings on "Local and Sustainable Food" through drawings, paintings, photography, essays, or poetry. Topics were created in three grade-specific categories to guide students with the content of their entries. Entries were judged on understanding of the environmental topic, creativity, and originality.
Winning entries were displayed at Earth Day Coalition's EarthFest 2012 at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo for thousands of visitors to see. Each winner was invited to participate in the Welcoming Ceremonies, and received the acclaimed Hope and Stanley Adelstein Award for Excellence. The winning entries will be on display in a traveling exhibit throughout the year.
