Keep Prince William Beautiful (KPWB) has announced the start of the organization’s annual Teen Art Contest. This year’s contest, sponsored by Burke & Herbert Bank, features the theme ‘Protecting our Pollinators.’
“Keep Prince William Beautiful is thankful for our partnership with Burke & Herbert Bank. Their sponsorship of our art contest means local students can use their creativity to interpret this year’s theme of ‘Protecting Our Pollinators’ while competing for a chance to win a scholarship,” said Lynda Kummelt, KPWB’s Executive Director. “We are thankful for their continued support of our mission for a cleaner, greener Prince William County.”
The art contest is open to any 9th through 12th grade student in Prince William County. Submissions must be an original artwork depicting the theme “Protecting Our Pollinators.” The winning entrant will receive a $500 scholarship; their work will be displayed at the Occoquan Arts and Crafts Festival in June. The second and third place winners will receive $350 and $150, respectively.
“This contest is a fun and engaging way to inspire students to use their creativity to build awareness. As a local bank, we are honored to be a part of a program that helps teens recognize an important environmental message and have the opportunity to earn a valuable scholarship as well,” said Terry Cole, Executive Vice President, Burke & Herbert Bank.
