Students invited to enter T-Shirt Design Contest

OWENSVILLE, Ohio (Jan. 7, 2019) – All local K-12 students are invited once again to participate in the annual Spring Litter Clean-Up T-Shirt Design Contest.  Sponsored locally by the Duke Energy Foundation, the Clermont County Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Southern Ohio Association of Realtors (SOAR), the T-shirt contest helps to jump-start planning for the clean-up event, scheduled for Saturday, April 13.

Any K-12 student attending a school located in Clermont County, or within the East Fork watershed, may register to compete. T-shirt designs should emphasize litter clean-up and prevention. Students should register and review the rules on the event website:

The grand prize winner will be awarded $100, with an additional $100 going to the winning student’s school art department. There will also be 13 grade-level awards given at $25 each.

Designs must be submitted by Feb. 8.

The Spring Litter Clean-Up will be held from 9 a.m.-noon on April 13 in various communities across the county and watershed. The clean-up is a combination of two events that have proved successful for more than 20 years in Clermont County – the East Fork River Sweep and Clermont Clean & Green events. The event is coordinated each year by the Clermont Soil & Water Conservation District and the Valley View Foundation.
