Students connect art to environment

Elementary school students have a chance at scoring an environmental grant for their school and having their artwork featured on a reusable shopping bag by participating in an art contest.

The second annual contest, organized by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation and Earth Day Canada, invites elementary school students from across Canada to submit an original drawing showcasing how they are connected to nature.

The winner will have their design featured on a limited edition reusable shopping bag and receive a $7,500 environmental grant toward the development of an outdoor classroom or schoolyard naturalization project, a digital camera and an eco-friendly lunchbox for each student in their class.

Finalists’ artwork may also be featured in the Earth Day Canada 2012-13 calendar.

Entry deadline is Oct. 5. The top 10 finalists will be announced Nov. 5 and the winner selected through online voting. For more information, please go to www.fef.td.com/artcontest.
