Participants must submit original artwork. The use of any copyrighted materials is prohibited. Submissions will be judged on artistic merit, creativity, originality and understanding and representation of stormwater.
Finalists will have the opportunity to refine their designs with an MU graphics class. The first-place winner will receive $100, and the second- and third-place winners will be awarded $50 each. In addition, the first-place winner’s art teacher will be given $200 to be used for classroom art supplies.
