NRCA announces National Roofing Week dates, art contest
National Roofing Week will be June 3-9, and NRCA is holding its annual Children's Art Contest, sponsored by A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply and the International Roofing Expo, to promote the importance of having a roof and the value of a professional roofing contractor.
The contest is open to children in grades 1-8 who are relatives of NRCA members and their employees. Group 1 will be grades 1-2; Group 2 will be grades 3-5; and Group 3 will be grades 6-8.
Participants are asked to imagine what roofs will look like in the future. What kind of tools and materials will be used to install a roof? What other uses might a roof have? Children may also consider what they might look like if they were to become roofing professionals.
Winners will be selected by a panel of judges from the Oak Park Art League, Oak Park, Ill. In addition, a people's choice winner from each age group will be named; these winners will be chosen by public online voting.
Winners from each group will receive gift certificates and other prizes and have their artwork featured on all 2018 National Roofing Week materials, as well as additional materials to be displayed at industry events during the year, including the 2019 International Roofing Expo (IRE) and NRCA's 132nd Annual Convention in Nashville, Tenn.
In addition, the roofing industry relative of the adjudicated winner from each age group will receive two free passes to attend the 2019 IRE.
Entries must be received by April 15. Winners will be announced and notified during National Roofing Week.
Entries should be sent to:
