Schuylkill Students Street Art Contest    

Tue Feb 11, 2014

Schuylkill Students Street Art Contest

Get your artwork on the streets!

 

Partnership for the Delaware Estuary and Schuylkill Action Network

want you to help us liven up the streets in your community with some street art!

 

When rain or melting snow flows over the land, it picks up pollutants like trash, doggie doo,

and oil from leaking cars and carries it into storm drains - which lead to the river!

 

 

Winning artwork will be applied to the streets in your community, serving as a visual reminder that only rain should go down the storm drain!  No Template is needed: Simply design your artwork with a storm drain in mind.

 

Create an original work of art, incorporating a storm drain, showing how we can all help keep the Schuylkill River clean.     

  Prizes include thousands of people seeing your artwork on the street, a $50 gift card, and a pizza party for your class!

Help keep the Schuylkill River cleanby showing that only rain should go down the storm drain!
