Calling Young Artists: The National Wind Energy Art Contest

Looking for a chance to showcase your artistic talent? KidWind, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Technologies Office, is thrilled to announce the National Wind Energy Art Contest – an incredible opportunity for young artists like you!

Open to students ranging from kindergarten through eighth grade, this contest aims to inspire creativity while promoting renewable energy education. The theme for this year’s contest is “Beautiful Wind Power,” inviting you to explore the beauty and significance of wind energy in your artwork. Express yourself using crayons, paints, pencils, or any other artistic medium you prefer, creating an original piece on an 11″ x 17″ tabloid-sized paper. Younger students, from kindergarten through third grade, may opt for standard letter-sized paper if they find it more convenient.

Imagine your artwork being admired by attendees from the renewable energy industry and displayed as part of KidWind’s presentation. Additionally, winning artwork will be exhibited at the U.S. Department of Energy’s office, allowing the public to marvel at the interpretations of “Beautiful Wind Energy” by talented young artists like you.
