What photos, drawings, poems, digital art, and memes (yes, we meant it, memes) invoke the need to protect your community from climate change? Help us to harness your creativity to sound the alarm about the climate emergency. Art is an incredibly important tool that will engage all County residents from a variety of backgrounds. Through this contest, we hope to reach those who might not have previously been engaged in the climate planning process, especially those from marginalized backgrounds who will be disproportionately impacted by changes in climate.
