Clean Air Day 2023

We're launching our Clean Energy = Clean Air Youth Art Contest as part of Clean Air Day!

Local youth of Riverside, CA, are invited to submit art depicting images that champion the use of clean energy (like solar panels), clean air, and clean energy jobs (like solar installers).

The art contest submissions will launch on Clean Air Day, October 4, 2023, with submissions due by Friday, October 28, 2023.

The selection and judging of the top three art projects will be decided in November of 2023.  

This art activity is intended to have Riverside community members and youth spark a conversation about how clean energy technology and jobs can make clean air a reality for our community.
