Youth Poster Contest

2016 Youth Poster Contest materials now available! 

As communities around the state began planning their 2016 Great American Cleanup™in Arkansas events, the Keep Arkansas Beautiful Commission (KAB) invited students in grades K – 5 to submit art entries in its annual youth poster contest.

KAB coordinates a Youth Poster Contest in conjunction with the Great American Cleanup in Arkansas to involve elementary school students, increase awareness of the Great American Cleanup and educate the public about the importance of a clean and beautiful community to economic development, civic pride and environmental quality of life.

The Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup in Arkansas, organized and promoted statewide by the Keep Arkansas Beautiful Commission (KAB), is an annual spring cleanup event when communities focus on local beautification efforts, flower- and tree-plantings, park improvements, trail-building, Main Street rehabilitations, litter pickups, and other activities in advance of the tourism/vacation and festival seasons.

KAB coordinates a Youth Poster Contest in conjunction with the Great American Cleanup in Arkansas to involve elementary school students, increase awareness of the Great American Cleanup in Arkansas, and educate the public about the importance of a clean and beautiful community to economic development, civic pride and environmental quality of life.
