Assist with 4th Annual Sustainable Santa Monica Student Art Contest -Saturday, May 12th - 1:00 - 4:00pm
Santa Monica, CA
Every year the City of Santa Monica’s Office of Sustainability and the Environment and Sustainable Works host a city wide art contest teaching youth in Santa Monica about Sustainability. This year’s theme is zero waste and waste reduction and all students K-12 in Santa Monica are eligible to submit posters and/or trash sculpture art. We have plenty of ways for SMC Sustainability Workshop students to get active and volunteer for their 3 hours of community service needed to complete the program helping Sustainable Works do some management of all of the art submissions and prepare for the celebration festivities at the Santa Monica Community Festival. Activities include data entry and organizing hundreds of poster submissions and taping them onto huge panels that will be displayed at the Santa Monica Community Festival on May 19th!
Special Instructions: Dress comfortably and bring a jacket. You may be asked to work outside.

Sustainable Works is a non-profit environmental education organization and a project of Community Partners. Our mission is to foster a culture of sustainability in cities, colleges, and businesses.
The Sustainability Workshop program is a 9 week educational workshop. Students in the program meet for 1 1/2 hours once a week at the Center for Environmental and Urban Studies on the Santa Monica College Campus.
During the workshop meetings our participants will learn how to incorporate sustainable practices into their everyday lifestyles, improve their quality of life, and save money while saving resources.
Sustainability Workshops teach students how to implement simple conservation methods with the help of a trained Workshop Leader and the Sustainable WorksBook. Our WorksBook is a comprehensive and up to date resource guide that provides valuable information and recommendations for the following topic areas: waste production, water, chemical, and energy consumption, transportation emissions and consumer habits. Each chapter increases one's understanding of the local, regional, and global environmental impact of their daily choices.
Each week a trained Workshop Leader facilitates the hour and a half meeting. Workshop Leaders review participants' lifestyle assessment, educate on the topic, demonstrate a variety of simple activities, and recommend specific changes that reduce participants' environmental impact. Our peer-to-peer learning environment makes Sustainability Workshops fun and trains tomorrow's environmental leaders.
Each meeting engages students in hands-on, interactive and educational experiences.
