WYLAND NATIONAL ART CHALLENGE

Every year, between Oct. 1- Dec. 1, the Wyland National Art Challenge encourages thousands of students across the nation to think about the many conservation issues we face around the world and interpret them through art. Students can choose to work collaboratively on mural projects or create individual works of art and earn a chance to win classroom prizes and scholarships. It is our hope that the process of interpreting their relationship to the natural world through art will lead students to a greater understanding of their role as future caretakers of our water resources.

In further support of the program, the Wyland Foundation and its partners have provided more than 500 schools with paint supplies, educational materials, and 50 square foot artist canvases. Winning entries are included each year in a full-color calendar presented by Toro Irrigation.
