Calling all students

In an effort to bolster civic education and educate communities on the role of county government, the National Association of Counties (NACo) is hosting the 2022 “I Love My County Because” art contest in conjunction with National County Government Month.

In addition to a $100 dollar prize, the top 13 submissions will be featured in a NACo calendar, which will be distributed to NACo members nationwide. Winners will also be announced in NACo’s publication, County News, and their artwork will be displayed at NACo’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.
