On August 15, 2021, the U.S.-China Environmental Education Foundation (UCEEF) hosted its first international art contest on the topic of “Nature and People” with a focus on the essential relationship between humans and nature. In cooperation with the Sharron Art Center and supported by US Education Management, this competition inspired students to be creative and to reflect on the importance of sustainability and the critical role that the environment plays in our lives. The competition was open to students who were between 7 and 18 years old, and who believed that artwork can remind people to think about the relationship between nature and humans, therefore inspiring more people to join UCEEF in promoting environmental protection.
The UCEEF Nature and People International Art Contest was judged and awarded under two age groups: one from 7 to 12 years old and another from 13 to 18 years old. The submittals were from all around the world, including the USA, UK, China, Canada, New Zealand.
