SALEM — Keep Oregon Green is celebrating its 80-year history with a billboard poster contest open to Oregonians of all ages.
The work should center on the artist’s vision for keeping Oregon free of wildfire.
The deadline is 5 p.m. Aug. 9, Smokey Bear’s birthday. All submitted work will be reviewed in the fall and the artwork will be displayed at major intersections, highways and interstates across the state in 2022 — turning Oregon into an open-air art gallery.
There will be three separate divisions based on age; grades one through five, grades six through 12; and people over the age of 18. The first, second and third placer in each division will receive cash prizes and certificates.
