Los Angeles has a population of about four million people. As the second largest city in the nation, it’s no surprise that we use a lot of energy. We all need to work together and conserve to keep our power grid working smoothly. So we are calling on students to submit original artwork illustrating how we can do our part.
Prizes will be awarded in each grade level, plus teachers of first-place student winners will also receive a prize. Winning students and their teachers will also be invited to an awards luncheon at the Los Angeles Times building.

Teachers, encourage your students to enter their original artwork in the 2016–2017 Hitachi Poster contest. Utilize articles in the LA Times to create a poster illustrating ideas for a futuristic “Sustainable City.”
We’re looking for ideas which use innovation and technology to create the city of the future:
We need your suggestions, in artwork form, on how to minimize pollution, use renewable energy sources, and meet our future city’s needs. Winning posters will be neat, colorful, and present a clear idea to help our homes, neighborhoods, or cities meet ecological friendly goals.
Students in grades 6-8 and 9-12 are eligible to participate. 1st-, 2nd- and 3rd-place winners will be chosen from each grade, and a grand prize winner from each age group. Teachers of first-place student winners will also receive a prize.
Submission deadline extended to February 28th, 2017.
