Eyes on the prize; take some time today with grade school students to imagine what a clean beach looks like. There is a poster contest that closes on Sunday, making it the perfect weekend pursuit.
The Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors’ Can the Trash! Clean Beach Poster Contest and educational campaign are designed to teach kids how trash from anywhere in Los Angeles County—no matter if it’s left in the South Bay, San Fernando Valley, the Gateway Cities or East L.A.—can end up on beaches like Dockweiler, Venice and Zuma and in the ocean.
The campaign includes the original “Clean and Blue” video, which is online at beaches.lacounty.gov/postercontest.
For the contest, 3rd through 5th grade students can submit artwork containing environmental messages about keeping the beaches and the ocean clean for a chance to have their art wrapped around beach trash barrels on some of Southern California’s most popular beaches.
This is the ideal time for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students to submit their artwork for the Can the Trash! Clean Beach Poster Contest. All entries are due Sunday, Jan. 10, 2021!
