Climate Change affects the world and our way of life in one way or another. The Southampton Youth Bureau’s getting the conversation started about Climate Change through this year’s Creative Arts Contest. The contest is open to students in grades 5 through 12 who reside or attend school in the Town of Southampton.

Artwork will be judged on quality, creativity, and presentation based on the artist’s portrayal of “Climate Change.” All art entries (maximum of two entries per artist) must be dropped off at the Southampton Youth Bureau’s main office at the Flanders Community Center, 655 Flanders Road or at the Citizens’ Response Center in Southampton Town Hall, 116 Hampton Road by Thursday, April 2.

Participating artists are invited to bring their families and friends to the final exhibit at the Watermill Center, 39 Water Mill Towd Road, on Tuesday, April 28, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Prizes will be awarded to the “Best Art Piece” in the categories of photography, graphic art, sculpture, and free-hand. Light refreshments will be served. For contest details and to view the registration form, visit or call 631-702-2425.
