The Alachua County Environment Protection Department announces that copies of the 2023 "Saving My Alachua" calendars are now available for distribution. The 2023 Saving My Alachua Calendar features winning artwork from the 2022 Saving My Alachua Environmental Art Contest (open to all K-12 students in Alachua County), along with tips on protecting the environment.
"We will be going into our tenth year in a row of the 'Saving My Alachua' Environmental Art Contest, and it has been inspiring to observe over the last decade the environmental awareness of our community's emerging citizen artists. Every year the program and participation grows, and we look forward to what the students submit this year," said Stephen Hofstetter, Director of the Alachua County Environmental Protection Department.
Hard copies of the calendar are available for pick up at the Alachua County Environmental Protection Department (408 W. University Ave, Suite 106, Gainesville) while supplies last. Office hours are Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The 2023 Saving My Alachua Contest deadline is February 10, 2023. Entry forms and submission guidelines can be found on the Saving My Alachua webpage
