The American Rock Art Research Association is holding its annual meeting in Las Cruces, New Mexico, May 27–30, 2016. The Education Committee is inviting schools in the area to participate in a poster contest. The theme is “Rock Art: The Importance of Cultural Heritage.” Posters are due May 10, 2016.
We hope that New Mexico teachers will be able to work this project into their busy schedules. It is an activity that falls under Social Studies and Art standards. We hope that several schools and different levels of students will participate. All final entries will be on display at the yearly conference in Las Cruces, New Mexico. The ARARA Education Committee will select the ultimate winners.
Each student will receive a certificate of participation. The grand prize will include cash, note cards, and a certificate of participation. The winner will be invited to attend the auction event at the Conference on May 28, 2016.
