The future is bright

Winners of NRCA's fifth annual children's art contest are announced

For the fifth year, NRCA conducted its Children's Art Contest as part of National Roofing Week, June 3-9. Co-sponsored by A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply, Aurora, Ill., and the International Roofing Expo,® the contest was open to children in grades 1-8 whose relatives work for an NRCA member company. Children entering this year's contest were asked to imagine what roofs will look like in the future or what they might look like if they were to become roofing professionals.

Winners were chosen from three age groups—Group 1: Grades 1-2; Group 2: Grades 3-5; and Group 3: Grades 6-8.
