Environmental Justice Art Contest

UMD's SGA Student Sustainability Committee (SSC) is accepting entries for its visual arts contest about fossil fuel divestment.  By pressuring the University System of Maryland to "divest", we ask that they remove its $71 million invested in dirty energy sources like coal, oil and natural gas and redirect those funds into renewable energy companies. Art submissions must relate to divestment, "dirty money", or other ideas regarding our environment, energy, economics, power, or justice (for more info please see: All student submissions will be showcased at the SSC's Divestment event on October 27, 2016. Contest winners will receive a gift certificate to a local College Park business.
Submission details:
Submissions of two-dimensional pieces may be emailed to, either as an attachment or as a photo of the art piece. Please contact that address for details regarding submission of three-dimensional pieces. 
Submissions accepted until October 24.
