TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Calling all parents of creative children, listen up!  There is still time for him or her to enter Pima County's Anti-graffiti poster contest.

It is an opportunity to fight an eyesore and win some cash at the same time, thanks to an extended deadline from county officials.

The new deadline is June 30, so those interested in submitting a poster have about two weeks to do so. 

Graffiti can have a negative impact on businesses and neighborhoods, and this contest is a chance for children to show how graffiti affects the community and discourage those who do it.

The winner of the contest, open to children 9 to 18 years of age, will receive a $100 gift card and they will have their artwork used in Pima County's Anti-graffiti campaign which includes distributing posters to libraries, schools and community events. 

This contest is part of the county's Taking Action Against Graffiti program or TAAG.

To submit an entry go online to www.pima.gov/graffiti and fill out a form and put it in the mail with artwork or deliver it in person to one of two locations -

201 N. Stone, 4th Floor
