Middle school aged youth are eligible to participate in the art searchh (6th – 8th graders). You don’t have to be connected with a certain school to submit your art (could be “just” you, if you’re in a youth group, church group, homeschool, etc.).  The art search deadline is  March 27, 2015. 

Statewide judging of the artwork will take place in April and we will let you know by April about how you did (and you’ll get your award, of course!).  See the poster judging information page for more details.


A few suggested messages (below) have been developed — you don’t have to use these messages, they are just some ideas; if you do decide to use one of the messages, write it down on the back of the poster. PLEASE DO INCLUDE THE NUMBER FOR FREE HELP, 1-877-MY-LIMIT, and/or website www.opgr.org, in your poster.
