Getting Students Interested in Water Quality Through Art and Film
The City of Raleigh Division of Stormwater Management is currently accepting entries for its ‘Capture It! Stormwater Arts Contest’. This is an opportunity for high school students to capture the importance of stormwater runoff through art and film in a way that will bring more awareness to the community about improving the water quality of Raleigh’s streams and lakes.
Students are encouraged to create one of the following to show residents how they can help keep streams clean.
- A 60-second video;
- A painting to be placed on a rain barrel; or,
- A drawing to be used as a stencil for City of Raleigh storm drain covers.
Registration closes Friday, January 26, 2018. Winners in each category will receive a $300 prize, and will be featured at the 2018 Raleigh Environmental Awards. So get out there, make some art, and change your community for the better!
