Environmental Art Contest Winners Announced

[Fort Myers, FL] (May 26, 2021) Keep Lee County Beautiful, Inc. (KLCB) is pleased to announce the winners in the 32nd annual “Leave The Scene Clean” Calendar Art Contest. The contest drew hundreds of entries from local students, representing public, private, and home schools in Lee County. Submitted work was judged on artistic execution and originality as well as environmental theme, such as litter prevention, recycling, community cleanup, and protecting the environment.

 The 12 First Place selections, one from each grade 1 through 12, in addition to the cover winner, are featured in KLCB’s full color 2022 “Leave The Scene Clean” Calendar. Also selected were Honorable Mentions in each grade.  KLCB will host an award ceremony in the fall (the event is free and open to the public) at which time the artwork will be exhibited, the calendar will be released, and the winners will receive their awards. The cover winner and senior winner will each be presented with a $500 cash scholarship courtesy of Covanta Energy.

Each calendar month contains a different student work of art. The back cover will feature an environmental message by Estero High School student Nicole Sierra-Iszler, the 2021 cover winner.

These popular full color calendars can be had for a $3 donation each and are available through participating Lee County Schools, who retain all proceeds collected with the funds being used to pay for environmental projects at the participating school.

The calendar project is made possible through corporate sponsorships. Sponsors for the 2022 calendar include Covanta Energy, Above Board Chamber, Advanced Disposal, Boston Red Sox, Coastal Waste & Recycling, Century 21 Commercial, Fort Myers Beach Chamber, Fox4, LCEC, Lee County Solid Waste, Sam Galloway Ford, Solitude Lake Management, Surfing Evolution & Preservation, Sun Harvest Citrus, and Waste Pro.
