Eastern Shore Land Conservancy has announced a call for entries for their fourth annual Kids Essay and Art Contest. The Contest is open to all students in grades pre-kindergarten through eight in the six Upper and Mid-Shore Counties including Cecil, Kent, Queen Anne’s, Caroline, Talbot and Dorchester. In both the essay and the poster contest, students will be asked to tell, via the written word or via their artwork, where they like to play and relax on the Shore, what parks they enjoy and what visions and dreams they have for future parks and open spaces. "It has been so exciting to see this program grow over the past four years and we look forward to seeing what our Eastern Shore youth have to say this year about the best places to enjoy the outdoors here on the Shore" said Kristine George, ESLC’s Director of Communications. "We can learn so much from our children about how what places they love and what visions they have for parks and open space here on the Eastern Shore." Art entries are open to grades pre-kindergarten through eight and essay entries are open to grades five through eight. Prizes will be given to the first and second place posters and essays and submissions will be judged by age categories of kindergarten through 2, grades three to five and grades six through eight.
