Trash Can Contest 2017

Missouri public, private and home-school students in grades K-8 are invited to help in the fight against litter in the Show-Me State -- and to have creative and educational fun -- by participating in the “Yes You CAN Make Missouri Litter-Free” trash-can-decorating contest.

The annual trash-can contest encourages school classes and groups to join in the fight against litter by decorating and displaying a large trash can with the “No MOre Trash!” logo and a litter-prevention message using a variety of creative media.

Schools may submit one entry in each competition category: K-2, 3-5 and 6-8. Entries are judged based on creativity, adherence to contest rules and effective use of theme and logo.

First-place winners from each competition category receive $200 awarded to the sponsoring schools. All first-place winners are then eligible for a grand prize of a trophy and $600 awarded to the sponsoring school.

There is no entry fee for the contest. Participating school groups must submit a completed entry form online and up to three photos by Friday, March 17.

Contest rules, entry forms, logo, past contest entries and winners, and educational information are in the sidebar on the left.
