SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — Four students from Santa Cruz elementary and middle schools were recognized by the City of Santa Cruz as winners of the annual Keep Santa Cruz Clean and Litter Free poster contest on Oct. 28. Their winning artwork was unveiled in a ceremony with Mayor Martine Watkins that included a tour of the downtown big-belly trash compactors where the artwork will be displayed over the next year.
The four winners were Westlake Elementary School student Haisley Flannagan and three youth who were all Mission Hill Middle School students at the time of submission: Estrella Contreras, Audrey Pierson and Kaila Walker. Each young artist was awarded a reusable City of Santa Cruz canvas tote bag containing environmentally-friendly prizes.
The City’s Keep Santa Cruz Clean and Litter Free poster contest gives local students in grades K-12 a chance to creatively promote litter prevention in their community. The colorful winning artwork is displayed on downtown big belly trash compactors to reinforce the City's litter prevention messages.
