Open for Registration
Global Biotech Week
Proud to Partner
GRADES 3 TO 6 | Deadline September 25th
Grades 3 to 6 students are invited to participate in an art poster competition on the themes of biology/nature and pollution. Students will collect some (or all) of the litter (plastic bottles, food wrappers, straws, plastic/paper bags, bottle caps, etc.) they produce over a week at school* to incorporate into an art project. The art they create will be of something in nature – a plant, animal, landscape, etc. that could be negatively impacted by litter. Students are welcome to use pencil crayons, crayons, paint, and any other art materials for their project alongside the litter.
*Teacher’s discretion on the length of time students will collect litter, and if they can bring litter from home for their art projects.
Teachers will then upload a picture of their students' art to the dashboard to enter it into the competition. All posters will be displayed on the Ag-West Bio Website as a feature of Global Biotech Week. A panel of artists and scientists will judge the posters and select finalists in each age group. Prizes will be awarded to winners of the poster competition! Posters must be 11 x 17 inch (28 x 43.2cm).
Registration and poster application deadline is September 25, 2023.
