Tillamook County 2022 Calendar Contest for Middle School Students (Grades 6, 7 & 8): “We’re All in this Together”

SOS Tillamook—the Prevention Program of Tillamook Family Counseling Center, is excited to once again be gathering artwork from local students to be featured in the 2022 Tillamook County Calendar. The 2021 calendar provided lots of helpful ways for “When Things Change …. We are all finding ways to adjust and cope with the new ways of doing things.
For 2022, the theme is “We are all in this together” – middle school artists are encouraged to show how you navigate the changes with new ways of doing everyday activities; how we can help others deal with the stress and uncertainties with kindness, hope and support.
