RVTD Clean Air Campaign Art Contest
We all love the Rogue Valley!  From Mt. Ashland to Table Rocks and beyond, this valley has many enjoyable activities that bring us outside.  We also have this phenomenon called an inversion layer.  This inversion occurs because we are in a bucket (a valley surrounded by mountains on all sides) that sometimes traps the same air for weeks at a time.  While we can’t change that, we can change some of our actions that contribute to the amount of pollution in that trapped air.  We can drive less, take public transportation, ride our bikes, walk, or simply not idle our engines. That’s where the new Clean Air Campaign comes in!  The Rogue Valley Council of Governments (RVCOG) has been awarded a Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant to share information with residents about air quality in the Rogue Valley and how you can reduce the number of “bad air” days. As a way to get residents involved with the campaign, RVCOG wants your best art!

  • What do you love about the Rogue Valley?
  • What do you like to do outside on beautiful, clear days?
  • Bicycling or hiking, looking for plants or animals, rafting or skiing, sunrises or sunsets, playing soccer or simply relaxing in a hammock?
  • Draw it on paper no larger than 11”X17”.

A panel of judges will pick up to 10 winners whose art will be applied to one of RVTD’s new Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) powered buses in the summer of 2015.  Your art could be travelling around the Rogue Valley for the next seven years, showing what you love about where you live!  Gift card prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place drawings!  Make it happen!
All submissions must be turned in to RVCOG or RVTD during normal business hours by the end of April for judging by end of May 2015. Soon you may see your art on a RVTD bus stopping in your community or at your school!  For more information, please visit the program website currently under development at http://www.roguevalleycleanair.org/.
