BATAVIA, OH — All local K-12 students are invited once again to participate in the annual Spring Litter Clean-Up (SLC) Logo Design Contest. The contest is sponsored locally by the Duke Energy Foundation, the Clermont County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau and the Southern Ohio Association of Realtors (SOAR) to promote the SLC event and encourage student civic engagement.
The student with the winning design will receive a $100 cash prize, with an additional $100 going to their school’s art department. There will also be 13 grade level awards given at $25 each. This year’s winning design will be printed on a stainless steel water bottle, a promotional gift each volunteer will receive for their participation. Any student attending a school located in Clermont County, or within the East Fork Little Miami River watershed, may register to compete. Students should register and review the rules on the event website: www.springlittercleanup.com. Designs must be submitted by Friday, March 6.
