The Ozone Camellia Festival is inviting all St. Tammany Parish high school and Slidell-area middle school students to participate in its annual art competition. The two divisions for the contest are grades 4-8 and grades 9-12.

The student may submit an original artwork maintaining a camellia theme. Color medium is preferred.

The work should be no smaller than 8 ½-by-11 inches and no larger than 11-by-17 inches. Participants are asked to keep in mind that their artwork should be suitable to be used as the centerpiece of a poster to advertise the upcoming Ozone Camellia Festival, should it win. The top award winner becomes the property of the Camellia Festival.

Cash awards will be given to the top three entries in each division. Ribbons will be awarded to other outstanding entries.

Each entry should be clearly labeled with the student’s name, grade and school. All entries should be received by Nov. 21 at 3 p.m. at the St. Tammany Parish School Annex, 980 Ninth St., Slidell. For information, contact Rodney Lowe, contest chairman, at (985) 641-0730.
