It’s time to get those creative juices flowing for the annual Green Up Vermont contests. Any student K-12 is encouraged to submit one entry each for both of Green Up Vermont’s annual poster and writing projects. Entries must be received by Jan. 31, 2013. One poster design is selected as the official 2013 Green Up Day poster, promoting Green Up Day, which will be held on the first Saturday in May. Poster entries should be 11 x 14 inches, created by hand (without the aid of computers), and must include the words “Green Up Vermont.” Writing entries should be a poem or an essay of up to 400 words relating to “What Green Up Day means to you.”
