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 have been decorated with 18 works of art from local students and residents. These joined the 12 trash cans from last year. 

This contest was organized by sixth-grade students from Wabash Elementary School 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 was a great success! In all, the students received a total of 140 artwork submissions. Thank you to all of the artists who participated! Two of this years trash cans display Wabash Elementary School student artwork and will be displayed at their school in their outdoor classroom. In addition to the winning entries being displayed in our parks and at Wabash Elementary, artists have the option to submit their entries to be showcased at City Hall on rotation.
