In an effort to bolster civic education and educate communities on the role of county government, the National Association of Counties (NACo) is launching the “I Love My County Because” art contest in conjunction with National County Government Month.
NACo and county leaders are spreading the word about county roles and responsibilities, which are often unknown or misunderstood. By inviting children and young adults ages 18 and under to create artwork for the 2021-2022 “Counties Matter” calendar, NACo hopes to raise awareness about programs and services that impact people’s lives every day.
Winning artwork will be featured in an 18-month NACo calendar, which will be distributed to NACo members nationwide. Winners will also be announced in NACo’s flagship publication, County News, and their artwork will be displayed at NACo’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.
