Keep Lee County Beautiful recently announced the winners in the 32nd annual “Leave The Scene Clean” Calendar Art Contest.

The contest drew hundreds of entries from students, representing public, private and home schools in Lee County. Submitted work was judged on artistic execution and originality, as well as environmental theme, such as litter prevention, recycling, community cleanup and protecting the environment.

The 12 first place selections — one from each grade 1-12 — in addition to the cover winner, will be featured in KLCB’s 2022 “Leave The Scene Clean” calendar. Also selected were honorable mentions.

KLCB will host an award ceremony in the fall, at which time the artwork will be exhibited, the calendar will be released and the winners will receive their awards. The cover winner and senior winner will each be presented with a $500 cash scholarship, courtesy of Covanta Energy.
