Having fun and learning – a great combination
Children’s events are designed by various sponsors each year to stimulate, educate, and just plain have fun. We have had games, art projects, recycle projects, and many more over the years. Below we will post what is happening this year. Bring your children and enjoy!
Earth Day is a wonderful day to celebrate everything about our planet. Sherman Parks & Rec is partnering with the Earth Day Festival to host a Recycled Art Contest. Participants in grade school are encouraged to display their art.
The rules of the competition are simple. All art must accomplish one of two things: either the art must celebrate our planet, or it must utilize recycled material. If a painting, drawing, or coloring is submitted the art work must lay flat. If a 3D piece of art is submitted, it must not take up any more space than 1 cubic foot.
All artwork will need to be submitted to the Parks and Recreation no later than April 18 by the end of the day. Submissions should also have the bottom portion of the contest rules attached to the art.
The art will be on display at the Municipal Ballroom from 9AM-4PM. It can be picked up at the Parks and Recreation office between Monday and Friday the following week. Download Poster.
