Art, Poetry and Essay Contest 2017

The annual Art, Poetry, and Essay Contest contest is 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 "Vibrant Green Space" 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 2017 at Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds 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. 

In partnership with Mayor Frank Jackson's Sustainable Cleveland 2019 initiative, the EarthFest 2016 Art, Poetry and Essay Contest theme will be "Vibrant Green Space".
