The theme for the 2022 calendar art contest, open to all students in Marion County and West Salem, and sponsored by Marion County Environmental Services and the Mid-Valley Garbage & Recycling Association was “Greenwashing: 12 Months of Eco-Swaps.” Greenwashing is the practice of using advertising, buzzwords, and suggestive packaging to convince consumers that products or practices are “sustainable” or “eco-friendly” when they are not. This relatively new term was not familiar to our class so we began to investigate it with research and writing, which led to concept development, planning and sketching, and a final draft.

Our winners will all be part of the annual art calendar, receive a Visa Giftcard, and be honored at a televised Marion County Board of Commissioners Meeting coming up! If you have any of them in your classes give them a Covid friendly fist bump!
