Louisiana's Environmental Awareness Student Art & Language Arts Contest

2019 Art & Language Arts Contest

The 2019 LEEC Student Environmental Awareness Art and Language Arts Contest will feature the theme "Taking Environmental Action: What's Great About Your Part of the State?" We encourage students to investigate environmental efforts specific to their hometown, parish or region of the state. 

Students: Does your community have a unique recycling center, dedicated volunteer organization, green business or outdoor facility that makes it unique in the environmental landscape? Take inspiration from people doing good things for the environment and create a piece of visual or language art that explains what is great about your part of the state. 

The deadline for the contest is Friday, April 19, 2019.
