Essay and Poster Contest

The Annual Essay and Poster Contest is open to all Illinois fifth- through eighth-grade students. This contest provides a unique opportunity for the students to showcase their art and writing skills while displaying their knowledge of coal, the state’s most abundant natural resource. The twenty-five winners are recognized at an award ceremony in Springfield, Illinois. Their posters and essays are also published in a calendar sponsored by the Illinois Coal Association.
