FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Laurel, Maryland – October 15, 2013: Gather your crayons, paintbrushes, and markers—the fourth annual WSSC calendar contest deadline draws near. Students in the second through fifth grades attending schools in Prince George’s and Montgomery counties are eligible to enter. This year’s deadline is Friday, November 1; and, the theme is “Why I ‘Can the Grease’.”
“Can the Grease” is WSSC’s ongoing effort to urge residents to pour fats, oils and grease into a can and then into the trash rather than pour these clogging materials down the drain. When too much of these materials get into the sewer system, backups occur, which can be costly to repair and can harm the environment. Twelve winners will be chosen. Each winner will receive $100 and six copies of the calendar. Approximately 500 student entries were received for last year’s calendar contest.
Entries must be no larger than 8 ½” by 11” and no smaller than 5 ½” by 11”. Students may use any type of media (oil, watercolor, pastels, pencil, pen and ink, crayon), but three-dimensional work will not be accepted. Entries that are mounted and framed will not be judged.
Entries must have the artist’s name, grade, school, school address, teacher’s name and teacher’s email address on the back of the entry. Only one entry can be submitted per student.
The deadline for entries is Friday, November 1 at 5:00 p.m. Entries may be sent or delivered to WSSC, Attention: Community Outreach Group, 14501 Sweitzer Lane, Laurel, MD 20707.
