2019-2020 Choose Iowa Coloring Calendar Contest

Students from all across Iowa are encouraged to enter into the annual agriculture calendar contest. Artwork will be selected based on creativity and the ability to connect agriculture products from the farm to everyday life. Entries are reviewed by a panel of judges and 12 winners will be featured in the Choose Iowa Coloring Calendar.

The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship distributes the calendars at the Iowa State Fair. The winning artists will be honored by Secretary Mike Naig at a ceremony during the fair.

Students at or under the age of 18 are invited to submit artwork. Pictures should be drawn in a horizontal orientation using only black lines on plain white, 8 ½ by 11-inch paper. The pictures should not be colored in. They can be submitted either electronically by emailing communications@iowaagriculture.gov or mailed to the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, Coloring Calendar, 502 E. 9th St., Des Moines, IA 50319. Each submission should include the attached form, which lists the artist’s name, age, school, hometown, and contact information.
