From City of San Diego: April 22 is Earth Day and the City of San Diego is encouraging kids celebrate this year with a coloring contest that imagines what the future holds for a sustainable San Diego. Are there more community gardens and green spaces? Are people carpooling to work and school? The City wants to see what young people can dream up.
The contest is open to children ages four to 13 who live in the City of San Diego. To enter, they need to draw their vision of a sustainable San Diego in the Climate Action Plan children’s activity booklet “Our Climate, Our Future.” Children are encouraged to use crayons, colored pencils, markers or any other art medium to illustrate their vision.
The entry form and booklets are available at San Diego Public Library locations offering in-person services. They can also be downloaded online in English and Spanish. The deadline to submit entries is April 30, 2021. Two winning entries will receive an environmentally friendly prize package courtesy of Think Blue. The winning drawings will also be shared on City social media channels and the City’s website.
The City’s Environmental Services, Library and Sustainability departments collaborated on the coloring contest to encourage children to think and live sustainably.
