Below is a press release from the RMLD:
READING, MA — The Reading Municipal Light Department (RMLD) invites high school students from Reading, North Reading, Wilmington, and areas of Lynnfield served by the RMLD to participate in its 4th Annual High School Art Contest. Any two-dimensional art medium will be accepted, including, but not limited to, drawings, paintings, sketches, photography, and graphic art. Artwork must be submitted online and is due by Monday, March 15, 2021.
The pandemic has highlighted our collective ability to adapt when faced with significant challenges. To that end, the theme of this year’s contest is resilience. Students are asked to visually portray the concept of resilience while incorporating the RMLD and/or electricity into their artwork.
Each student who submits artwork by the deadline will receive a certificate for ten hours of community service. Up to five winners will be selected based on the number of submissions received and the content of the artwork. Each winner will receive a gift card of up to $100 for qualified school or art supplies. One or more of the winning submissions will be selected to be featured on the cover of RMLD’s 2020 Annual Report.
The RMLD has produced a short video describing the contest and theme. The video and official contest rules are available at https://www.rmld.com/community/pages/high-school-art-contest-20202021.
