Public Service Recognition Week, observed nationally the first full week in May, calls attention to the broad range of services provided by public servants and encourages others to seek a public service career.

In observance of this week, the city of Houston holds a poster contest that spotlights municipal jobs as the artists illustrate what job they would want to perform as a city employee. The PSRW competition builds children's knowledge of municipal careers and brings families together through art. 

Poster Contest Rules

Draw yourself in a city of Houston job. We have job listings to help you better understand the job position. Anyone ages 5-18 whose parent or relative works for the city can participate.

Using any medium, draw yourself as a city employee on the job. Be CREATIVE. Posters must be approximately 8-1/2 x 11 inches.

On the back of the poster, put the poster title, your name, your age, contact phone number as well as the relatives name, department, work phone number and their relation to you.

Deadline /Submission

Deadline for poster entries will be Tuesday May 7, 2021.
