Clermont SWCD and the Valley View Foundation are kicking off the 2019 Spring Litter Clean-Up (SLC) event with a T-shirt Design Contest for local K-12 students. This year’s contest is sponsored by the Duke Energy Foundation, Southern Ohio Association of Realtors (SOAR), and the Clermont County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau (CVB). 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. The 2019 Spring Litter Clean-Up will be held on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at various locations across Clermont County and the East Fork Watershed. Entries are due to the SWCD office (PO Box 549, 1000 Locust Street, Owensville OH 45160) by Friday, Feb. 8, 2019 by 4 pm.
