Haywood student wins climate art contest
A Haywood Early College student was one of three winners in a statewide art contest focusing on climate change.
More than 60 K-12 students participated, creating visual art using climate graphs and data for the N.C. Climate Education Network contest. Bucky Matthews was named the winner of the high school division.
The panel of judges included staff from the N.C. Sea Grant, N.C. Climate office at N.C. State University and the N.C. Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Air Quality.
Contest submissions are now closed, but the NCCEN will accept submissions for this art activity through 2022 and display the art on its website. bit.ly/3KW8IuL.
