(Entries Due Nov. 7)
When you go outside, what makes you wonder? Is it the colors and shapes of clouds? The burst of thunder during a rainy afternoon? Or a thick white blanket made of slowly falling snowflakes? Weather, the state of the atmosphere at a particular time and place, is constantly changing. So look around and ask yourself, what makes you wonder about weather?
This year’s contest invites young scientists and artists to explore weather in the world around them. Students grades 2-4 may submit one 2-D entry that does not exceed 16″x20″. The work should be creative, bold and colorful. Please provide a title on the entry form that describes the artwork (do not use the contest title Wonders of Weather: What Do You See?). Winners will have their artwork featured on the IGES web site, and will receive a Visa gift card (1st place – $100, 2nd place – $75, 3rd place – $50).
