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.

In light of the extended school closures in Oregon due to the COVID-19 virus, we are accepting digital entries for the 2020 Oregon Agriculture in the Classroom Calendar Art Contest! While we prefer mailed entries, if you do not have access to mailing or postage during this time, we are accepting scanned art or photographs of artwork. You can upload files on the form below or you can email entries to aitc@oregonstate.edu with the entry form information.

Online Entry Form

Every classroom who submits a summary sheet with their 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 Oregon 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.
