MCD and MoDOT Sponsor Statewide Anti-Litter Campaign

The Missouri Department of Conservation and the Missouri Department of Transportation are inviting Missouri public, private, and home-school students in grades K-8 to help fight litter in the Show-Me State, and to have creative and educational fun by participating in the 2019 “Yes You CAN Make Missouri Litter-Free” trashcan-decorating contest.The annual contest encourages school classes and school groups to join in the fight against litter by decorating and displaying a large trashcan with the “No MOre Trash!” logo and a litter-prevention message using a variety of creative media.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. Learn more about the contest at nomoretrash.org.
