Students at The John Cooper School received recent news coverage and secured celebrity judges for an upcoming contest they invented — and they want you to participate!

Paul Eakin, a Junior at Cooper and creator of The Climate Champions Youth Art Contest, manages the initiative with the help of 3 teammates: Jay Kodali, Jaiden Hou, and Nishika Prasad, who are also juniors.

The contest was created for grades 1 - 12 to raise awareness about climate change.

“We are working with The John Cooper School Eco Club to encourage students to use their imaginations to express their thoughts, feelings, and solutions about climate change using the power of art,” said Eakin.

On September 22nd, they launched the contest in The Woodlands/Spring Area. The deadline for entries is November 1st.

“We have lined up celebrity judges in film, sports, music, art, and literature, including an iconic Academy Award winner, a U.S. Olympic golf coach (and PGA Golf Coach of the Year), a champion concert fiddler for a famous band, an award-winning artist, a children’s book author, a movie director and more. We have cool prizes, and a news media outlet will publish features on the winners and their artwork.”

The students also recently received coverage from Woodlands Online: https://www.woodlandsonline.com/npps/story.cfm?nppage=76713

To learn about the competition guidelines, prizes, and judges, please visit their Climate Canaries website at: www.climatechampions.earth.

From Curiosity to Wisdom

A recognized leader in independent school education for 31 years, The John Cooper School is proud to have grown with The Woodlands. Since the inaugural opening day in 1988, Cooper has nurtured a love of life, learning and the world around us.

Our history includes being part of George Mitchell’s initial vision for The Woodlands. In the early years of developing a new planned community, Mr. Mitchell set aside 43 acres for a private school and sought the guidance of renowned independent school educator Mr. John Cooper to counsel him about establishing a college preparatory school in his “new hometown.”

That vision became a reality when The John Cooper School opened on September 6, 1988 and the school has grown in both size and distinction to become one of the premier independent schools in the Houston area.

Cooper opened with an enrollment of 175 students in Pre-K through Grade 7 in 1988 and a grade level was added in each subsequent year until the first class graduated in 1994.
