The Bradford Era Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is announcing the Litter Hawk Youth Award Program, a recognition program for students in kindergarten through sixth grade, who complete a designated project specific to their grade level. Kids can participate individually or as part of a lesson initiated by schools, home-schools, scout troops, 4-H clubs, environmental clubs or other organized groups.
The Litter Hawk Youth Award Program is a way for kids to share their hope, optimism and concerns about litter and inspire others to care for their communities through art, words or video. In response to Pennsylvania’s new anti-littering education campaign, “PA Fights Dirty: Every Litter Bit Matters,” the theme is: Show Us How Every Litter Bit Matters to You. Projects include: a poster for grades kindergarten through 4 and an essay or video for grades 5 and 6.
Two entries will be selected as winners in each grade level. First place will receive a $50 gift card. First runner-up will receive a $25 gift card. All participants will be recognized with certificates. The deadline to participate is Jan. 31, 2023. Winners will be announced in April, in time for Earth Day celebrations.
