    poster contestThe Pima County Department of Transportation invites students between the ages of 9 to 18 to design a poster for its Taking Action Against Graffiti (TAAG) Program.

    The TAAG program will distribute its anti-graffiti poster at public libraries, local schools and community events across Pima County, and their art could be on it!

    Students should create an original piece of art, no larger than 8 1/2 by 11, to show how graffiti affects our community and to discourage those who do it.  Entries can be realistic or abstract and must be suitable for all audiences and contain no obscenities or profanity.

    The deadline to submit art is Friday, October 16 at 5 p.m.

    A four-member committee of Pima County staff will review all entries based on the following criteria: creativity, originality, visual impact and communication of the effect graffiti has on our community.  The committee will select a finalist from each of the five age groups: 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16 and 17-18 and a three-member panel of community leaders will then select the winner of the five finalist along with four runners-up.

    The winner will receive a $100 gift card and have its artwork featured on Pima County's Anti-Graffiti Campaign materials. The four runners-up will each receive a $25 gift card.

    Students interested in participating should fill out the TAAG poster contest submission form and mail or hand-deliver their artwork to:
    TAGG Poster Attn: Julie C. Simon
    201 N. Stone, 4th Floor
    Tucson, Arizona 85701
