Any K-12 student in Massachusetts is eligible for the Cool Science competition.
Entries can be submitted electronically or hard copy by mail. If Entries are submitted online, you can complete the online registration. If you choose to send your artwork through the mail, you must tape a complete and signed registration form to the back of your artwork.
The canvas/paper should be 24 inches wide and 9 inches tall, but the image should be 22 inches wide by 7 inches tall. In other words, the artwork should maintain a 1 inch border all the way around the canvas, which means for the 24" x 9" canvas, you have a 22" x 7" work space.
All projects must be composed using a landscape orientation.
Yes, we welcome collaboration! Students should be aware that any prizes earned must be shared among the artists.
Teachers, mentors, parents, and guardians are encouraged to support students' efforts to create and submit an entry to the Cool Science competition. Adults can be helpful in discussing the science of climate change, providing supplies, and solving technical issues with students. However, all creative work must be done by the student(s). See the Parents and Teachers pages for more information. Parents and teachers can be very helpful in ensuring that the science communicated in the artwork is accurate and valid.
Selected submissions will be displayed throughout the Lowell Regional Transit Authority in the Spring.
All entries must be submitted by the December 15, 2018 deadline. If mailing a hard copy of your submission, than the package must be post-marked by the deadline, December 15, 2018.
