Mural Contest

Mural Contest

Sponsored by Umpqua Bank

 

 

  • Mural must portray the 2020 Conference theme and how it applies to forest management in the Redwood Region:

      

       2020 Theme: "REDWOOD ROOTS.

                                   REDWOOD COMMUNITY.

                                        REDWOOD PEOPLE."

 

  • Mural must be created on wood pulp sheets provided by the Conference.  ONE PULP SHEET PER CLASSROOM PER HOMEROOM TEACHER.

 

  • Murals may be created using crayons, watercolors, poster paints, paper collage and other unique materials.  Use your imagination!  Remember, murals will be hung on a wall for display.  Murals that are not appropriately designed for wall hanging will be disqualified.

 

  • Murals will be judged on the use of the conference theme, creative use of materials and whole class participation.  The murals should be age appropriate with work done by the students with innovated uses of wood products and design.  The murals should be a learning experience for students; demonstrating an understanding of the interrelationship between the forest and human communities; the renewal ability over time of a managed forest; and the many people working together to fulfill the importance of the demand of wood products in our everyday lives.

 

  • The teacher’s name, grade, school, and telephone number must be on the inside of a 3x5 card staples on the bottom right hand corner of the mural facing up so the writing is visible.                                       

 

  • Each class not receiving a cash prize will RECEIVE A $50 CASH PARTICIPATION REWARD!

 

  • NEW THIS YEAR:  The murals will be divided into two grade categories for judging:  K-3rd grades and 4th-8th grades.  If you have a 3/4 combination, the mural will be judged in the 4th-8th grade category.  Prizes for wining murals in each category are: HUMBOLDT/DELNORTE/TRINITY COUNTIES:   First Place: $200; Second Place: $150; Third Place: $100; and three Honorable Mention Ribbons of $75 each.  MENDOCINO/LAKE COUNTIES:   First Place: $200; Second Place: $150; Third Place: $100; and three Honorable Mention Ribbons of $75 each.  (Note: Classes winning Cash Prize Awards will not receive an additional $50 Cash Participation Reward.)
