Each year the Valley Air District creates a 13-month bilingual calendar featuring Healthy Air Living messages and the creative artwork of San Joaquin Valley elementary and high school students.
Each year, 20,000 Healthy Air Living kids’ calendars are distributed to schools, libraries, businesses and public agencies across the Valley’s eight counties. The District will select 14 artists for the 2016 edition.
The contest is open to all San Joaquin Valley students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Artwork should be original work and demonstrate why it is important to have clean air or how everyone can help keep air clean.
Artwork should include a “Healthy Air Living” message. Some examples of Healthy Air Living messages include:
• Healthy air starts with me!
• Ride your bike, skateboard or scooter
• Check Before You Burn
• Drive Clean with an electric car
• Make one change for healthy air!
• Turn the Key and be idle-free!
• Carpool or walk to work and school
Don’t use Spare the Air messages in artwork. Healthy Air Living has replaced that program.
Artwork must be on an 8 ½ inches by 11 inches piece of white paper, turned on its side (landscape).
Deadline for entry is Oct. 5. Find the entry form and rules at: http://valleyair.org/kidscalendar.
