12 Student Winners Chosen in Yolo-Solano Air Quality’s 2018 Calendar Contest
(Davis, CA) – Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District’s (YSAQMD) Calendar Contest kicked off April 1, asking K-12 students throughout the Air District to share why they loved clean air. Out of the more than 70 entries received, 12 winners were selected who created colorful works of art using paint, crayon, pencil or pen.
The winning entries came from students attending Whitehead and Dingle Elementary Schools in Woodland, Cambridge Elementary School in Vacaville, and Fred T. Korematsu and Robert E. Willett Elementary Schools in Davis. Winners will receive a $30 Amazon gift card, certificate of achievement and have their artwork displayed in YSAQMD’s 2018 calendar which will be printed in the fall and distributed at local community events and outreach efforts. The winning entries were selected in a two part voting process by staff and the District’s governing board.
“We want to thank everyone who sent us their amazing entries,” said Public Information Officer Jenny Tan. “We hope that students learned more about the importance of air quality through this Calendar Contest.”
Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District supports its mission to protect human health and property from the harmful effects of air pollution through efforts such as public education and outreach. The yearly Calendar Contest runs every spring and is a fun and engaging opportunity for youth to learn about air pollution.
