Earth Day Art

Thank you to all of the artists who submitted designs for our 2023 Earth Day Celebration Poster Art Contest. As always, we were blown away by everyone's creativity and talent! Our winning artist for 2023 is Shannon Cline, who tells us "I’m a teacher in Lakewood who loves nature, learning and spending time with my family! I like to keep my art open-ended to allow for everyone’s interpretations to match their experiences. I see us walking toward a hopeful future rooted in sustainability."

Here is Shannon’s winning design:
