Contest Adds Art to Parks



For the second year in a row, Wentzville students teamed up with Friends of the Wentzville Parks, GM, Earth Force and the City of Wentzville to tackle litter in our city by hosting a trash can artwork design contest. Nine trash cans are decorated with eighteen works of art from local students and residents. These will join the 12 trash cans from last year. 

This contest was organized by sixth-grade students who want to make a difference in our community. To learn more about this and other student-led civic action projects, please visit the GREEN project homepage.

The 2018 contest submission period has ended! In all, the students received a total of 140 artwork submissions. Thank you to all of the artists who participated! The judges, representatives from the stakeholders listed above, are reviewing the artwork to determine which ones will be displayed. The 2018 winning entries will be announced soon!
