High School Artists Wanted for Macomb County Mural Project

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. What does being healthy mean to you? A daily stroll in the park? Eating generous helpings of vegetables? Making it a point to laugh every day?

These are just some ideas that may come to mind, but the Macomb County Board of Commissions, in conjunction with the Macomb County Health Department, is looking for high school students to depict what it means to them to be healthy on three blank canvasses in County buildings.

The 2015/16 High School Mural Contest is open to Macomb County students in grades nine through 12 who are looking to display their artwork while inspiring visitors at three Macomb County Health Department locations. Groups who enter the contest must have an adult (18 or older) staff member from the school be willing to oversee the production of the mural and take responsibility for the time frame in which it will be completed. More than one group/class from each high school can apply.

Three winners will be chosen through a public voting process and panel. Entries will be posted on County Websites and Facebook Pages, with open voting taking place from Nov. 30 to Dec. 4. The 10 entries with the most votes will then go before a panel of County representatives who will choose the top three.

Winners of the project will be announced on Dec. 14 and the project must be completed by April 29, 2016.

To apply, student groups must complete the attached Application Cover Sheet, which can also be found at macombboc.org, and provide a full-color rendition of the proposed mural on the Proposed Mural Sheet.

Completed applications must be submitted by Nov. 13 at 5 p.m. to Macomb County Board of Commissioners, One S. Main St., Ninth Floor, Mount Clemens, MI 48043 or via email to laura.murphy@macombgov.org.

For questions please contact Laura Murphy at the Macomb County Board of Commissioners office at (586)469-5125 or laura.murphy@macombgov.org.
