Show how you can help keep the air clean for Earth Day this year!
The North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Center (NCCETC) has officially launched the 4th Annual “Keep Our Air Clean” Student Art Contest, where students in North Carolina from kindergarten through high school can submit their artwork for a chance to be featured on billboards across the state!
Students’ artwork should focus on actions that people can take to reduce air pollution from vehicles and help keep our air clean. Examples include walking, biking, using public transportation, carpooling, using electric vehicles or biofuels, and more. Please make artwork family-friendly, non-partisan and non-copyrighted. You can learn about the alternatives at cleantransportation.org or fuelwhatmatters.org.
The winner will be chosen based on:
- Relevance and appropriateness of the message
- Visual design
- Public votes on our Facebook account (link to vote to come once all submissions are received)
Artwork in a more horizontal rectangular shape (about the shape of a billboard) is recommended.
- 400h x 840w pixels at 72 ppi
