Art + Rain Barrels

What happens when you combine teams of students and a collection of rain barrels?

You get Bayou Vermilion Preservation Association's Rain Barrel School Art contest!

For the second year (Check out the first year's group of barrels), teams of students collaborate on a design and compete against other schools, but it's all for a good cause. All the rain barrels will be auctioned off, and proceeds benefit Bayou Vermilion Preservation Association and the winning schools.

The three schools with the most votes will be recognized at a City-Parish Council meeting and will be featured in local print publications. Mayor-President Robideaux will also select the Mayor’s Choice Award. 

This year’s painted rain barrels have been designed by local middle school students from:
  • Ascension
  • Carencro Middle
  • Cathedral-Carmel
  • Edgar Martin
  • L. Leo Judice
  • L.J. Alleman
  • Scott Middle
  • St. Pius
  • Youngsville Middle

Want to vote on your favorite design, or bid to take your favorite barrel home? You've got TWO DAYS left!

Vote on your favorite design here.

The auction closes on Saturday, March 12, at 11:00am. 

Bid here!


Now go!

Curious how to implement a rain barrel in your own backyard? Revisit my blog post where I share how my fiance and I use ours! It's been a great addition to our yard and it's so helpful in the summertime when our plants need lots of TLC.
