Oneonta Area for Public Education is proud to announce a regional sidewalk chalk drawing contest!
Between now and April 21 (the day before the math portion of the state tests begin), create your own chalk drawing on your driveway, the sidewalk, or any other outdoor space, and send it our way. The only criteria is that it must say “Refuse the Tests” (or a similar opt out slogan!) somewhere. Be creative!
The winner (chosen by members of OAPE) will receive a basket of art supplies. The contest is open to all ages, individuals, or groups. Post your creation on Facebook and tag Oneonta Area for Public Education (you have to “like” us first). Set your sharing for “public.” You can also email us a picture to firstname.lastname@example.org for us to post. We will choose the winner from all submissions on April 22.
This contest open to anyone, but we can only deliver the gift basket within the greater Oneonta area. We encourage other groups throughout NYS to have their own contest, and help spread test refusal awareness to community members everywhere!
