The dead­line for en­tries is Mon­day, Oct. 2, for this an­nual, bilin­gual cal­en­dar, pro­duced with the art­work and clean-air mes­sages from stu­dents il­lus­trat­ing how Val­ley res­i­dents can live healthy air lives. Twenty-thou­sand copies are printed and dis­trib­uted free of charge to schools, com­mu­nity groups, health­care fa­cil­i­ties, churches and non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tions Val­ley-wide.

Guide­lines for cre­at­ing a win­ning Healthy Air Liv­ing cal­en­dar en­try:

Art­work should be in color. Pro­duced by paint, pen, crayon, marker, pen­cil or even com­put­er­gen­er­ated art. Vivid col­ors are rec­om­mended.
