Voting Opens for Kansas Don’t Spoil It Calendar Contest

TOPEKA, Kan. - The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has opened voting on student artwork entries to be featured in the 2014 Kansas Don’t Spoil It Calendar. Thousands of students from all over Kansas submitted artwork to KDHE to encourage all Kansans to be good environmental stewards. 

KDHE has narrowed the entries to five per grade level. Voters across the state will choose the winning entry for each grade. Winning students will be invited to the state Capitol in December. They, along with their families and teachers, will meet Governor Sam Brownback and have their pictures taken.

“This is a popular student contest that has been running for 15 years,” said Bill Bider, Director of KDHE’s Bureau of Waste Management. “We encourage Kansans to take a few minutes to enjoy these fun and inspiring entries and to show their support for these students by casting votes for their favorites.”

The last step in the online voting will show the choices the voter has made and ask for a final selection for the calendar cover. Voting ends Friday, Nov. 8.
