    Pima County’s Taking Action Against Graffiti (TAAG) program is having an anti-graffiti poster contest for students ages 9 through 18. TAAG poster contest

    The TAAG program will distribute its anti-graffiti poster at public libraries, local schools and community events across Pima County.

    Students are invited to submit an original art work (no larger than 8½ by 11 inches) to show how graffiti affects our community and to discourage those who do it.

    The deadline for the contest is 5 p.m. Friday, May 30.

    • Only one art work can be submitted per person.
    • Artwork can be realistic or abstract and must be suitable for all audiences and contain no obscenities or profanity.
    • Submitted art work will not be returned.
    • The submitted art work will be judged on its creativity, originality, visual impact and communication of the effect graffiti has on our community.

    A four-member committee of Pima County staff will review all entries and select one finalist from each of five age groups: 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, and 17-18. A three-member panel of community leaders will select the winner from the five finalists.

    The winner’s artwork will be the design used for Pima County’s Anti-Graffiti Campaign. And the winner will receive a $100 gift card. The four runners-up will each receive a $25 gift card.
