The DOE Office of Sustainability is conducting its 7th annual Energy Conservation Artwork Contest. This competition is open to all NYC DOE schools from all grade levels (K-12). Fifteen pieces of original art will be selected that best illustrate how energy can be saved through efficiency and conservation in our schools. The winners will be grouped by age level; 5 Elementary, 5 Middle School, and 5 High School*. The goal of the contest is to create a dialogue and encourage students, teachers, administrative staff, and parents to save energy through art. A calendar will be produced  after the contest at no cost using the winning pieces of artwork, which will be distributed to schools. Prizes will be awarded to all 15 winners at an award ceremony in April at the Tweed Courthouse. The final artwork will be selected based on the design’s message, subject relevance, and artistic originality.
