Litter Education UpCycled Contest

Keep Oklahoma Beautiful (KOB) engages middle school students to take action in understanding the importance of ending litter in Oklahoma. We challenge students to tackle this issue by reusing items to make "UpCycled" art. Photos of submitted art pieces will be posted on a contest website for a public vote to determine contest finalists. The winner is chosen from the top three finalists by contents of accompanying required art piece and essay at the Environmental Excellence Celebration.
