PHOTO PROVIDED Cover artwork for the 2021 calendar.

The 32nd annual Keep Lee County Beautiful art contest for the 2022 “Leave The Scene Clean” calendar is now open. The full-size color calendar features the winning environmental artwork of Lee County students. The contest is open to all public, private, virtual and home-schooled students.

Students are asked to create a full color drawing or painting showing what they have learned about conserving resources and keeping the environment clean. Submissions will be judged on artistic execution, originality and environmental theme, such as litter prevention, recycling, community cleanup or protecting the environment.

The judges will select a cover winner, 12 first place winners (one each from grades 1-12) and honorable mentions. The winners will be recognized at a gala award ceremony next fall.

The deadline for entries is April 23.

The calendar, which is used as an educational tool, is distributed throughout the school system and at KLCB events. A blend of corporate support, educational content and children’s art makes the project one of the most fulfilling ones of KLCB’s mission. KLCB donates the calendars to schools to serve as a source of funding. Schools keep 100 percent of the proceeds for use toward environmental projects.

Contest rules and the entry form are available at http://klcb.org/leave-the-scene-clean-calendar.html or by contacting the Keep Lee County Beautiful office at 239-334-3488 or emailing tisha@klcb.org.
