The Earth Hour Banner Project required student artists to create a design that could be viewed from a distance, used the entire canvas space and depict climate change or any environmental theme. The students worked diligently for two weeks to complete the project, which raises awareness about the need to protect the Earth. The students were recognized for their work by Vaughan Ward 1 Councillor, Marilyn Iafrate.
