Breathe Easy Art Contest for Kids

The BC Green Langley Riding Association is hosting a children’s art contest to see how kids imagine our Langley communities when we can all breathe easy. Three winning artists will receive a prize and have their art used to promote a green future for Langley!

Until June 19th, entries will be posted on the BC Greens of Langley Riding Association Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. Winners will be announced on July 5th using our social media and by email.

The contest is open to children aged 4–12 years old who live in the Township of Langley or Langley City. We want to see in your artwork your vision for a world in which people, animals, and BC’s plants are all able to “breathe easy.”

What are the contest entry rules?

  • Can be produced:
    • traditionally, eg. crayon, pencil crayon, felt marker, watercolour or oil paint, etc., or
    • by computer-generation, with a resolution of 200 dpi or higher
    • How and when will the contest be judged?

A panel of 2 Langley artists will pick 3 winners. Below you can find the bios of the two artists who will be joining the panel.

What is the prize?

  • Each winner will receive a $50 Opus Art Supplies – Langley gift certificate.
  • Winners will also be announced on the BC Greens of Langley social media platforms as well as in our e-newsletter.
  • Winners could also have their artwork used to promote BC Greens of Langley events such as our Clean-Up Days.

Protecting your health

BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.

Creating safe spaces

The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
