NRCA's fourth 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 to grade
school-age children, showing them the value of professional roofing contractors in their communities.
The contest is open to children in grades 1-8 who are relatives of NRCA members and their employees. In preparation for
a child's participation, NRCA encourages members to talk to children about what they do as roofing professionals and
why their jobs are important. This not only gives children ideas about what to draw, but also educates them about the
value of roofing professionals.
Winners from each group are selected based on the artwork that most effectively illustrated the importance of a roof.
Visitors to NRCA's website will vote for their favorite entry in each group.
Winners are chosen from the following age groups:
Group 1: Grades 1-2 Group 2: Grades 3-5 Group 3: Grades 6-8
Winners from each group will receive gift certificates and other prizes and will have their artwork featured on all
2017 National Roofing Week material and additional material to be displayed at industry events throughout the year,
including the 2018 International Roofing Expo® and NRCA's 131st Annual Convention in New Orleans.
In addition, the relative of the winner from each age group will receive two free passes to attend IRE® 2018.
