The Clermont County Visitor’s Bureau (CVB), the Duke Energy Foundation, Lykins Energy Solutions, and the Southern Ohio Association of Realtors (SOAR) are teaming up to support the 2017 Spring Litter Clean-Up in Clermont County and the East Fork Little Miami River Watershed.  The event will kick off this November with a T-shirt design contest open to all local K-12 students.  “We’re happy to support this event and to see the unique t-shirt designs submitted by the students,” says Mark Calitri, Executive Director with the Clermont CVB.

Any K-12 student attending a school located in Clermont County, or within the East Fork watershed, may register to compete.  T-shirt designs should emphasize litter clean-up and prevention.  Students can review contest rules and register through the event website at: www.springlittercleanup.com.  The grand prize winner will be awarded $100, with an additional $100 going to the student’s school art department.  There will also be 13 grade level awards given at $25 each.  Designs must be submitted by February 3, 2017.

The Spring Litter Clean-Up will be held 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday, April 22, 2017, in various communities across the county and watershed.  The clean-up is a combination of two events that have proved successful for more than 20 years in Clermont County – the East Fork River Sweep and Clermont Clean & Green events.  The event is coordinated each year by the East Fork Watershed Collaborative and Valley View Foundation. 

For more information about the Spring Litter Clean-Up or the T-shirt design contest, please contact the Clermont Soil & Water Conservation District/East Fork Watershed Collaborative at 513-732-7075
