2022 Theme: "Growing a Greener Tomorrow!"

The Green Life Art Contest is an annual art contest geared towards K-12 students that falls under the larger umbrella of the Athens-Clarke County Green Life Awards. Organized by several ACCGov divisions focused on environmental education and sustainability, the Green Life Awards recognize environmental leaders in our community, and the art contest has been a piece of this program for over 10 years. This year's theme is "Growing a Greener Tomorrow". 2022 brings us the opportunity to work together to grow a greener tomorrow. What does a green future look like to you? What ideas do you have for a green tomorrow? We encourage you to create artwork (painting, drawing, digital, sculptures), short video (30 seconds – 1 minute), take a photograph or write a poem to demonstrate how you envision a green tomorrow.
