Step 1: Imagine one way Seattle can save energy. Maybe it’s a new kind of building, train, boat, or whatever you can dream up. All ideas welcome. Get creative!

Step 2: Draw your idea.  

Step 3: Snap a photo of the drawing and have the child’s parent or legal guardian email it to: In the email, please include: 1) a short description of the idea presented in the drawing;  2) the artist's first name and age; 3) this phrase: "KUOW has my permission to enter my child's drawing into their contest and to share my photo."
