Keep Lee County Beautiful recently extended the entry deadline for the 2021 “Leave The Scene Clean” calendar art contest to May 29. During this time of virtual learning, teachers and administrators can still include the contest in their curriculum and encourage the students to work on their artwork at home.

Keep Lee County Beautiful has been hosting the contest in Lee County for over 30 years. The full-size color calendar features the winning environmental artwork. Grades 1-12 are encouraged to participate. The contest is open to public, private and home-schooled students. They are invited to create a full color drawing or painting showing what they have learned about conserving resources and keeping the environment clean.

The judges select a cover winner, 12 first place winners – one from each grade- and 36 honorable mention winners. Winners are recognized and receive prizes at a gala award ceremony in the fall.
