Six Annual Count ME In Student Contest Promoting School Attendance, Learning and Community

Count ME In is seeking students to create a poster, sculpture, song, poem, or video to promote learning, school attendance, and school community for the 2021 Attendance Awareness Month in September 2021 and yearlong celebration.

Through their chosen media, students will share what learning and being part of a school community means to them. The winning submissions will be reproduced, including the artist’s name and school, and distributed throughout Maine.

Students, age 6 through high school, compete in one of two age groups: ages 6-11 and age 12 through high school. The winning artists will receive gift cards.
