School and Youth Programs
The District supports science-based programs that educate youth and families about the impacts of air pollution. The school and youth programs listed below aim to teach students about where air pollution comes from and ways to reduce it in San Diego County:
The District needs artists from our local schools to submit drawings with clean air themes for our calendar contest. Students attending charter schools or homeschool are welcome to participate.
- Artwork must be attached to the entry form and postmarked by October 21, 2017.
- Artwork should be your original drawing and demonstrate why it is important to have clean air or how we keep our air clean.
- Artwork may include a clean air message.
- Artwork must be on an 8 1/2" by 11" piece of white paper, turned on its side (landscape).
- Do not fold or staple artwork.
