Calendar Contest Information

The Contest is Easy to Enter

Oregon students, grades K-6, are invited to submit original artwork about Oregon agriculture for the contest. We encourage students to use a lot of creativity and color in their artwork.

Every classroom who submits artwork will receive a personalized certificate of participation for each student. The winning 13 students receive $50 and their artwork will be published in the 2020-2021 school-year calendar. Honorable mention artwork is also selected and posted on AITC’s website.

Each month in the calendar features one student’s artwork along with daily agricultural facts.

Contest entries are due May 6, 2020. Please review instructions carefully and mail to Oregon Agriculture in the Classroom, 200 Strand Ag Hall, Corvallis, OR 97331.
