LEEC eNews Bulletin: Art Contest Deadline Extended to May 5, 2017

The Louisiana Environmental Education Commission has extended the deadline for the annual Environmental Education Art and Language Arts contest to Friday, May 5, 2017 to allow students who were testing or on spring break the opportunity to participate. Our art and language arts contest is a great way for students to paint, draw or tell a story about what the environment means to them.
 
YOUR STUDENT COULD WIN A CASH PRIZE! First Place: $200 Second Place: $100 Third Place: $75. All of the winners, their families, teachers and principals get invited to a reception at the Governor’s mansion.
 
UP TO 24 WINNERS! The contest has four age groups (Group 1: Contestants ages 5-7, Group 2: Contestants ages 8-10, Group 3: Contestants ages 11-13, Group 4: Contestants ages 14-18 ) with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in both the art and language arts categories.
 
Our theme this year is Protecting Louisiana's Endangered Species. The only limit is your students’ imaginations!
