In 2015, Parallel initiated a Calendar Contest between select partner schools. The schools were chosen at random and the goal was to have one class from each chosen school illustrate a picture representing a specific month of the calendar year. Illustrations can be created using colored pencils, markers, watercolors, paint, oil pastels, etc.; there is no limit to which resources can be used. Parallel then chose “winners”, produced these images into calendars and distributed them to all of our partner schools nation-wide! The contest was such a success that Parallel continues the tradition yearly with our partner schools. Each year we receive an abundance of submissions and we enjoy viewing them all, even those that were not selected as winners. Student’s imaginations are extraordinary and we hope you enjoy our calendars as much as we do!
