2023 Clean Air Calendar Poster Contest

​​​​Contest Theme: 30 by 30​

To lessen the effects of climate change for ourselves and all other living things, scientists have determined that we should preserve at least 30% of our lands and oceans by the year 2030. The theme for this year’s poster contest calls on students to show what our lives and/or the environment would look like if we accomplished this goal. This can be depicted through photography, hand-drawn artwork, or digital media.
