Student Poster Contest

The contest is designed to combine a student's artistic talent with the ability to show how to conserve energy and water. We ask teachers to put their students' creativity and energy to good use. Marion County and Westfield students and teachers are up to the challenge!

About the Contest

Energy and water conservation not only saves the environment, it saves money. Now, learning this valuable lesson can be fun! Citizens is challenging Marion County and Westfield students (grades 3-8) to a creative competition. The rules are simple; students should create a unique poster that demonstrates conservation in their home or community, and will be judged on how effectively students convey their message. Two grand prize winners will be selected, one from each category, grades 3-5 and 6-8. Teachers of winning students also receive a prize.

For ideas to inspire poster designs, review Tips for the Home.

Entering is Easy

  • Teachers can request the Citizens Energy Savers contest packet online. The contest packet includes an instructional poster, complete contest brochure, classroom supply of posters with entry forms on the back and a business reply envelope for submitting completed posters.
  • Teachers then pass out the materials, explain the objectives and give students their deadlines. The entire class does not have to participate; however, the more students participating, the better the odds are for the teacher to win a prize.
  • Please ensure that all students complete the official entry form on the backside of the poster.
  • Submit all entries together in the business reply envelope provided in your contest packet.
