Piedmont Environmental Alliance is seeking entries for a youth art contest that will be featured at the group’s annual Earth Day Fair on April 23. Students from grades K through 12 from throughout the Triad are invited to submit works of art, photography, or writing about Earth Day and why it is important to them. Sponsored by WXII 12, the art will be on display for visitors to enjoy at the Piedmont Earth Day Fair on April 23.

“This year, our Earth Day Fair Youth Art Contest is focusing on why Earth Day is important to young people,” said Jamie Maier, executive director of Piedmont Environmental Alliance. “A critical part of PEA’s work is empowering the next generation to be environmental leaders. Art is a powerful way to communicate about important issues around the environment and climate change.”

To have artwork displayed as part of the contest, students must sign up on or before April 15. They can drop off their artwork on or before April 22. Learn more at

The Earth Day Fair Art Contest will feature prizes, and local artists will pick winning artwork from each age group. The winners will be announced live at the Earth Day Fair at 12 noon on April 23.

The Piedmont Earth Day Fair will take place April 23 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds. The event is free and includes great food and music, activities for adults and kids, and wonderful earth-friendly exhibitors. Learn more at
