Young artists have a chance to showcase their artistic talents and help improve the Central Valley’s air through an annual calendar contest.

Students from kindergarten through high school can enter the Healthy Air Living Kids’ Calendar contest, sponsored by the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District.

Fourteen student illustrations will be selected to promote healthy air in the eight-county air basin the district covers. The result will be a full-color, bilingual wall calendar.

The district will print 20,000 copies of the calendar and distribute them free to schools, community groups, health care facilities, churches and nonprofits

throughout the San Joaquin Valley.

All contest entries must be in color, submitted in a horizontal, landscape format measuring 11 inches wide by 8.5 inches high. Each must contain a message about how to live a healthy air life. Bilingual and Spanish messages are encouraged.

The deadline to enter the calendar contest is Oct. 8, a Monday.

An entry form with information about the artist should be attached to the back of each submission and can be found at Artwork should not be folded or stapled.

Entries can be mailed to: 2013 Healthy Air Living Kids Calendar Contest, San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District, 1990 E. Gettysburg Ave., Fresno, CA; or turned in at the Northern Region office, 4800 Enterprise Way, in Modesto.
