Design a poster for River Sweep
Students in primary and secondary schools are invited to design a poster for the 24th annual River Sweep 2013. Fifteen prizes will be awarded. The grand prize is a $500 check and the school representing the grand prize winner will also receive an award. A $500 prize will be presented to the student with the winning design for the official River Sweep T-shirt. Thirteen $50 prizes will be awarded to one winner at each grade level.
The poster contest is open to students living in or attending schools in counties bordering the Ohio River.
The 24th annual River Sweep will be June 15. River Sweep is a one-day cleanup project for the Ohio River and its tributaries. River Sweep is held to create an awareness of water quality problems caused by litter and illegal dumping. The poster contest, held in conjunction with River Sweep, is one way to spread the word about litter prevention. Posters submitted for the contest should reflect this goal and focus on encouraging volunteer participation. Deadline for the contest is Dec. 14.
