REDWOOD CITY, CALIF.---
The Port of Redwood City is looking for entries for its first ever Calendar Art Contest "Summertime on the Waterfront." The deadline to submit is Wednesday, August 1, 2018.
The Port of Redwood City is hosting an art contest to encourage young residents ages 7-8 to explore and learn about the Port. With the summer season around the corner, children will have many opportunities to visit the Port and participate in waterfront activities such as sailing, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, kite flying, and picnicking, or simply enjoy scenic peninsula views. Budding artists are urged to describe their favorite waterfront memories in art form, and submit their artwork for a chance to be included in the Port’s 2019 calendar.
Twelve (12) winners will be selected, one artwork featured for each month. All winners will receive two (2) tickets to Marine Science Institute's boat harbor tour, art supplies, and the calendar displaying their
winning artwork. The Port will distribute calendars to the public at PortFest, the Port’s annual celebration of the working and recreational waterfront held on the first Saturday of October (October 6, 2018).
The following art contest rules apply:
- The contest is open to kids ages 7-8 who are residents of Redwood City.
- Only one entry per person is allowed.
- The entry form must be completed, including parental/guardian consent.
- Artwork must be on a horizontal plain sheet of white 8½-inch by 11-inch paper.
