The drawing contest has been held annually for 19 years. This year’s theme is “Love the Earth.” Children from the age groups of 3-5, 6-8, 9-11, 12-15 years old in Southern California are invited to participate and encouraged to draw in their originality, creativity and ideas for environment protection.
The criteria of judging include creativity, color, the techniques of the drawing, and how related the content is to the themes of the contest. Students from West California Academy of Art and Design take active part in the contests and win awards every year at the contest.
Themed with “Love he Earth,” this year’s drawing contest is more than just an art competition. Environmental protection is no doubt a major issue confronting the modern society. The issue is certainly relevant to each individual citizen and teachers, along with parents, should lead the efforts in addressing the environmental problems to children.
