Litterbag contest open
Children ages 5 to 12 years old are invited to join the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury’s fight against litter by creating their own litterbag design. One entry will be selected to appear on 5,000 litterbags to be handed out throughout Calcasieu Parish.
Entering is easy. Artwork must be related to the theme “Keep Calcasieu Clean. Don’t Litter.” These words, or another anti-litter message, may appear on the artwork. However, the participant’s name or other contact information must not appear within the design. Only one entry per child will be allowed. Artwork must be the child’s original creation and the winner will be chosen by a panel of judges.
The deadline for the contest is Thursday, June 30.
Entry forms are available at all Calcasieu Parish Public Library locations. A downloadable entry form, along with a complete list of rules, can be found at www.cppj.net/trash. Completed artwork can be returned to the library or scanned artwork can be emailed along with the entrant’s contact info (first and last name, age, grade, school, address and phone number) firstname.lastname@example.org.
