Clermont SWCD and the Valley View Foundation are kicking off the 2018 Spring Litter Clean-Up (SLC) event with a T-shirt Design Contest for local K-12 students. This year’s contest, sponsored by the Duke Energy Foundation, begins this December and any K-12 student attending a school located in Clermont County or within the East Fork Little Miami River watershed (including home-schooled students) is eligible to compete.

T-shirt designs should emphasize litter clean-up and prevention. Students can register for the contest through the event website: www.springlittercleanup.com. The student with the winning design will receive a $100 cash award and an additional $100 gift given to their school art department or local art program. There will also be 13 grade-level awards of $25 each.  Entries are due to the SWCD office on Friday, February 2, 2018 by 4 p.m.

The 2018 Spring Litter Clean-Up will be held on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at various locations across Clermont County and the East Fork watershed.
