Honoring Our Rivers: A Student Anthology, announced it will be accepting color submissions this year. The anthology also announced the final call for submissions for the 2014 publication of the anthology and thanked Select Impressions for generously donating the color printing this year.
A project of the Willamette Partnership, Honoring Our Rivers is intended to stimulate awareness of Oregon’s vital watersheds — including the waters, land, plants, animals, and habitats — as well as celebrate and inspire student works. The anthology includes original student art, poems, essays, photographs and drawings focusing on the relationship between people and watersheds. Interested participants are invited to visit www.honoringourrivers.org to download an application for submission.
With its combination of art and literature, diverse range of voices, and central focus on environmental connections, the Honoring Our Rivers anthology represents a uniquely Oregon publication. The anthology was first published in 1999 as a collaboration between Salem educators and Willamette River enthusiasts.
Sponsors of the anthology have included the Eugene Water & Electric Board, Wildwood/Mahonia, Clean Water Services, the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and the Port of Portland. Partners include: SOLV, The Freshwater Trust, Caldera Arts, Oregon Poetry Association, and Sustainable Oregon Schools Initiative.
