The Campbell Civic Improvement Commission announced today that its annual student poster contest is open to all fifth-graders residing in the Orchard City or attending a public or private school in the city.
Entries are due Monday, April 1 to the City Manager’s Office at City Hall, 70 No. First St., where applications can be picked up.
Entry forms can be picked up at your local school.
With the recurring theme of “What I Love about Campbell,” participants are asked to creatively illustrate people, places or things within Campbell that they enjoy.
Submissions will be evaluated and rewarded based on neatness, legibility, and adherence to the contest’s theme through representation of Campbell, as well as on grammar and spelling.
“We always enjoy this project because it is a great opportunity to engage Campbell’s youth, and to see what interests and excites them about our community,“ said Alan Zisser, Civic Improvement Commission chairman. “I look forward to seeing all the amazing works of art from our fifth grade students.”
Prizes, including the grand prize of a new mountain bike, donated by Wheel Away Cycle Center in Campbell, will be awarded for the top posters selected.
Poster winners will be invited to the May 8, 2014 Civic Improvement Commission meeting when awards will be presented.
All poster entries will also be on display throughout Downtown Campbell as part of downtown’s “Second Saturday” event on May 10 and throughout the weekend.
Here are the contest rules:
- Entries must incorporate the “What I Love About Campbell” theme.
