  • Selection: A jury will select the top three winners in each grade category as listed.  There will be 9 finalists, three from each grade range who will receive the prizes as listed above.  The Grand Prize Winner will receive their design on the 2018 Earth Day T-shirt along with their own shirt framed and $100 in art supplies for the winning art teacher.
  • Winning entries must meet the theme criteria to be guaranteed placement on Earth Day shirts. If entries are not representative of the theme, KALB reserves the right to use a design outside of this contest.
  • Keep in mind art will be transferred to a t-shirt and intricate detail may not show up as well once the image is on the shirt. Clean lines and limited number of colors work best for this purpose and will be considered when choosing winners as we want your artwork to be the focus of the t-shirt and clearly distinguished.
  • Keep Athens-Limestone Beautiful reserves the right to withdraw entries deemed inappropriate for children or entries that do not fit the theme. KALB also reserve the right to use any artwork submitted for the purposes of Earth Day T-shirts or for any other purpose related to the mission of KALB.
