MODoT and MDC sponsoring annual "Yes You CAN Make Missouri Litter Free" contest

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

 The Missouri Department of Transportation (MODoT) and the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) are sponsoring the annual "Yes You CAN Make Missouri Litter Free" trash can decorating contest. 

The contest invites school children K-8 across Missouri to decorate and display a 30 gallon or more trash can with the "No MOre Trash" (NMT) logo as creatively as possible. 

"In addition to teaching kids how litter hurts them, their communities and their environment," says MODoT NMT coordinator Stacy Armstrong, "the contest gives students an opportunity to help prevent littering by creating and providing a trash can with the No MOre Trash! message in their schools and communities."

Schools may submit one can for each category: K-2, 3-5, 6-8. There is no entry fee.

Materials that may be used for the contest include but are not limited to paint, glitter, wax, photos and fabric. Recycled materials are encouraged.

First place winners will receive $200 for their school. The grand prize winner will receive $600 for their school and a trophy.

Ozarks Christian Academy in West Plains won last year's 3-5 category and grand prize for it's "Get a Heart... Recycle! Tin Man" entry created by 11 grammar school students of teachers Angela Littljohn and Denise Estes.
