PA Cleanways Invites Youths To Express Concerns About Trash

PA CleanWays is excited to announce its annual Litter Hawk Youth Award Program. The Litter Hawk program gives youths an opportunity to express their concern about littering and illegal dumping, and preventative measures such as recycling, proper disposal, beautification and stewardship through visual arts, language arts and community outreach. This program includes two age groups, 10 and under and 11 to 18, and is ideal for organized youth groups, a classroom activity or an individual project.

Program brochures are available by submitting an online Web form on the PA CleanWays Web site www.pacleanways.org or by contacting the PA CleanWays' office toll free at 877-772-3673. The deadline to submit applications and projects is March 31.

Entries will be judged on creativity and the project's ability to convey the chosen subject. Three winning entries in each age group will receive gift cards to a bookstore in the amount of $75 (10 and under) and $100 (11- 18). Awards will be announced during Earth Month (April). The Litter Hawk Youth Award Program is not open to PA Clean- Ways employees or the immediate relatives of PA CleanWays employees. Only one entry per youth allowed.
