According to Ms. Amanda Aguirre, President and CEO of the RCBH, the objective of this contest is to raise awareness on the importance of taking care of our environment in the region, inviting students to make a drawing with emphasis on air quality, 3Rs (reduce, reuse, and recycle) or wild life.

The contest is open to students between 7 to 17 years old including anyone from the Somerton, San Luis or Yuma Youth Centers, Health Career Clubs, Casa de la Cultura (House of Culture), Seguro Social, public and private schools in Yuma, San Luis, and Somerton, Arizona and San Luis Rio Colorado Sonora.

Drawings must be in theme to an aspect of air quality, 3Rs, or wild life.

Drawing must be on 8.5”x 11” letterhead sized regular paper, made with colored pencils, acrylics, watercolors and crayons. Drawings must be on landscape layout.

Students should add a title to their work and include a brief description of what they wish to “communicate” through the drawing. 

The prize consists of special acknowledgement to all the 13 students selected for the Calendar presented during the first regular session of COBINAS to be celebrated in January 2018.  All participants will receive a certificate of participation.

The deadline to submit the drawings to the Regional Center for Border Health, Inc., offices is Friday, October 6th, 2017 at 5:00 p.m., located at 1130 East Main Street, in Somerton, Arizona or at the Ecology and Sustainability Development Commission of Sonora State (CEDES), located at Jalisco #903, in San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora.
