April is National County Government Month, and we would like to invite all of the school-age artists in Story County to participate in the “I Love My County Because…” art contest!
There are two ways to enter. Submissions are being accepted at the local (Story County) and national (National Association of Counties – NACo) levels. Local entries will be featured in and around county buildings through the month of June as well as on the county website. National winners will be featured in the National Association of Counties 2023 calendar and at NACo headquarters in Washington, DC.
Artwork must reflect some aspect of a county government function, service or program and be inspired by the artist’s accompanying sentence “I love my county because…”
To submit your materials to Story County, please fill out this form or go to https://www.storycountyiowa.gov/FormCenter/County-Outreach-9/I-Love-My-County-Because-Art-Contest-Sub-96.
