All Hollywood High students have been invited to participate in Richard Bloom’s 2019 Earth Day Poster Challenge in honor of Earth day on April 22. Students have the chance to express their creativity on the environment through their posters so long as they promote the theme, “Protect Our Species.”
In order to participate, the poster needs to be 8 1/2’’ by 11’’ and must be on recycled paper. Students are allowed to use any form of media, paint, photos, pencils, and collages to express this year’s theme. Each entry must include the student’s name, grade, and school name. They will also need to include a complete released formed signed by their parent or guardian in order to be in the contest. The entries are to be submitted to Bloom’s office at 2800 28th Street, Suite 105, Santa Monica, CA 90405. The deadline is on April 18 and any entry received after that date will not be considered for this year’s contest.
There will be four winners in total. Three will be first prize winners that will be selected from grade levels: K-3, 4-6, and 7-12. There will be one grand prize winner selected from the entire contest. The winners of the contest will receive a personalized letter from Bloom, a California State Assembly Certificate of Recognition, and have their posters showcased on his social media accLAUSDounts. Black Art Supply, a supporter of the contest, will also award the student’s instructor to purchase art supplies for their classrooms. Not only that, but they have agreed to display the winner’s art at their Santa Monica store location. More information can be found on
