Environmental Art Contest

Chandler Kids for Conservation

Each year, fourth-grade students in Chandler are encouraged to participate in the City’s Annual Environmental Art Contest. The contest is designed to illustrate the importance of reducing waste, conserving water, and preventing pollution. Every student sharing their vision is a winner in demonstrating their commitment to environmental stewardship.

Through drawing colorful pictures promoting recycling, water conservation or stormwater pollution prevention in Chandler, the contest is an opportunity for students to learn more about environmental stewardship in their community and can become a catalyst for environmental education in the classroom, as the City offers classroom presentations and curriculum about conservation topics.
