    mural by Joe PagacPima County’s Taking Action Against Graffiti (TAAG) Program invites young artists to submit artwork that conveys an effective anti-graffiti message to use on posters for distribution at public libraries, schools and community events across the County. 

    The deadline for entries is 5 p.m. Friday, September 30, 2016
    . Participants must turn in a completed submission form and the original artwork. 

    TAAG is conducting the art contest for young people ages 9 to 18 to help educate the community about the negative impact of graffiti. 
    • Only one art work can be submitted per person. 
    • Artwork can be realistic or abstract and must be suitable for all audiences and contain no obscenities or profanity. 
    • Submitted art work will not be returned. 
    • The submitted art work will be judged on its creativity, originality, visual impact and communication of the effect graffiti has on our community. 
    A four-member committee of Pima County staff will review all entries and select one finalist from each of five age groups: 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15- 16, and 17-18. A three-member panel of community leaders will select the winner from the five finalists. In the event a finalist cannot be selected from each age group, five finalists will be selected from all entries received. 

    The winning design will be awarded a $100 gift card and will be used on TAAG posters. A $25 gift card will also be awarded to each of the four runners-up.
