Attention NRCA members! The deadline for the 2017 National Roofing Week Children’s Art Contest, sponsored by A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply and the International Roofing Expo® (IRE), is quickly approaching. All entries must be received by the end of the business day, April 14.
The contest promotes the value of roofs to grade school age children, showing them the value of roofs and the roofing industry in their communities.
Children, stepchildren, nieces, nephews and grandchildren of all NRCA members and their employees in grades 1-8 are eligible to participate.
Roofing professionals are encouraged to talk to children about their contributions to the roofing industry and why their jobs are important. This will provide children with ideas for what to draw and educate them about the value of roofing professionals.
There will be three age groups; entries from each group will be posted on NRCA’s website, www.nrca.net where the general public will vote for their favorite entry from each group.
Winners from each group will receive gift certificates and other prizes and will have their artwork on all 2017 National Roofing Week material and additional material to be displayed at industry events throughout the year, including the 2018 IRE and NRCA’s 131st Annual Convention in New Orleans.
In addition, the relative of the winner from each age group will receive two free Super Passes to attend the 2018 IRE.
Following are the winners of the 2016 contest:
Group 1 (Grades 1-2) – Rocky, relative of Don Guthrie, Wayne’s Roofing, Sumner, Wash.
Group 2 (Grades 3-5) – Isabella, relative of Raphael Jube, Ideal Building Solutions, Norcross, Ga.
