NRCA's annual Children's Art Contest has concluded.
Check back for information on the sixth annual contest in 2019!
NRCA's annual Children's Art Contest, sponsored by A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply and the International Roofing Expo® (IRE), is part of National Roofing Week and promotes awareness of the importance of having a roof and the importance of professional roofing contractors to grade school-age children.
The contest is open to children in grades 1-8 who are relatives of NRCA members and their employees.
Children entering the 2018 contest were asked to imagine what roofs will look like in the future. What kind of tools and materials will be used to install a roof? What other uses might a roof have? Children also considered what they might look like if they were to become roofing professionals.
Each year winners are selected by a panel of judges from the Oak Park Art League, Oak Park, Ill.
Winners are chosen from the following age groups:
Group 1: Grades 1-2
Group 2: Grades 3-5
Group 3: Grades 6-8
In addition, a people's choice winner from each age group is named. These winners are chosen by public online voting.
Winners from each group will received gift certificates and other prizes and their artwork featured on all 2018 National Roofing Week material and additional material to be displayed at industry events throughout the year, including the 2019 International Roofing Expo® and NRCA's 132nd Annual Convention in Nashville.
In addition, the roofing industry relative of the adjudicated winner from each age group received two free passes to attend the 2019 IRE.Click here to view the 2018 art contest winners.
