VIENNA, VA — With the sun still bright in the summer sky, local children had a chance to shine through a sun-inspired local art contest. Local solar installer Ipsun Solar hosted its third annual Ipsun Sunny Summer Art Contest for elementary-aged children with support from Vienna’s Ben and Jerry’s location.
In August, kids were asked to share their sun-related artwork and learn about climate change and solar energy for a chance to win a Ben and Jerry’s gift card. Kids could go to Ipsun Solar’s contest page for some sun art inspiration ideas, as well as Bill Nye’s video explaining solar energy, kids’ videos about climate change and more.
Submissions largely came from Fairfax County kids, and there were submissions from DC too. The contest had four overall winners as well as top submissions by grade. The first place winner was first-grader Joey D.
