Students invited to create calendar art

Indiana’s electric cooperatives and their statewide magazine, Electric Consumer, invites Indiana students to enter the Cooperative Calendar of Student Art Contest.

A first-place artist will be selected for each grade and will receive $200. The artwork of each grade level winner will illustrate either the cover or one of the 12 months of the calendar. Up to nine additional artists will earn honorable mention awards and will receive $75. These works will appear in a special section of the calendar.

Artwork will be judged on artistic merit, originality, creativity and its suitability for a wall calendar. Indiana public, private or home-schooled students in grades kindergarten through 12 during the 2018-19 school year are eligible.

The 2020 wall calendar will be available at the offices of participating Indiana electric cooperatives in early autumn 2019.

A complete set of rules, instructions, required entry forms and additional contest information are available visiting The entry deadline is March 22.
