Voices of the River Contest
Calling All Young Artists, Poets, and Creative Souls
Each year students reflect on the streams, rivers and forests of the French Broad River watershed. Their work serves as a reminder that the rich natural resources of the Southern Appalachian Region continue to inspire and provide for new generations. To get the creative juices flowing, we invite kids of all ages to use our rivers and forests as a source of inspiration and submit a work of art showcasing your creative talent. Students may submit 2D or 3D art, poetry or writing, and video composition which includes mini-documentaries and videos of dance, songs, skits etc.
This years theme:
“Which French Broad River Species (plant, animal, etc.) do you feel most connected with?”
Entries are due Friday March 24th by 5pm and winners will be announced in late April. Submissions are displayed at RiverLink’s Earth Day Kids Festival and at cafe’s throughout the watershed. Submissions are judged by local artists, community members and RiverLink staff. The top three submissions within each category and age range are awarded prizes from local businesses.
Thank you to this year’s wonderful prize donors!
