Spring Litter Clean Up Success!

The Clermont Soil and Water’s Spring Litter Cleanup was successfully held on Saturday April 20th. This year we had 120 volunteers help collect over 150 bags of trash around Clermont County! Thank you to everyone who spent their time helping at this event. Each piece of trash removed from our streams make our shared rivers and streams that much cleaner!

The Litter Cleanup event is coordinated each year by the Clermont Soil and Water Conservation District and partially supported with a grant from Ohio EPA, Division of Recycling and Litter prevention. We truly appreciate your support and want to thank all of our partnering agencies and organizations.

We are already looking forward to next year’s clean up. If you weren’t able to make this event check out the Ohio River Sweep happening on June 22nd, for more information or questions contact Connie Miller at cmiller@clermontcountyohio.gov

Logo Design Contest

Before the Cleanup event, we held our yearly logo design contest for local K-12 students, sponsored by the Southern Ohio Association of Realtors (SOAR).

We received 50 designs across 11 grade levels. The overall winner this year was a 7th grader from Milford Junior High, Melissa Masiliunaite! Melissa’s logo was showcased on event garb and she won a $100 cash award! Winners also receive an additional $100 gift given to their school art department or local art program. Grade-level award winners received $25 each.

Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to everyone who participated! To see all the winning designs you can visit www.springlittercleanup.com
