It’s not too early to begin encouraging your student to create a piece of artwork or poetry for the 6th annual Voices of the River Contest. Have students visit the river and describe what they see, smell, hear, or how water is important to them through creative expression. This year, we will be accepting 2D and 3D artwork, poetry, and a brand new category: The Fundred Dollar Bill Project, where students can design their own version of a hundred dollar bill.
Entries will be judged by local artists and all work will be put on display at AB Tech’s Holly Library in April. To submit art or poetry to the contest, mail entries to RiverLink at P.O. Box 15488 Asheville NC, 28813 or drop off the submissions at the RiverLink Office (170 Lyman St.) between 8am-5pm Monday through Friday. The deadline for all submissions will be Wednesday, March 20 at 5:00 p.m.
RiverLink can provide you with ideas for prompts, worksheets, and lead lessons in the classroom with materials upon request! Our regular watershed education programs are also still available throughout the winter and spring, so go ahead and get your class scheduled for a free program today!
