The contest will run from June 8-17. The winner will be announced on June 18 through the department’s social media sites.

There will be one winner for the city schools, Tahoe Valley and Bijou and another winner for Meyers schools, Sierra House and the Magnet School. The two winning artists will be chauffeured to school on the last day of school in a fire engine.
