For the tenth year, we challenged all fourth grade students in Rochester to draw a brightly colored picture that displays:
- Why it is important to not litter
- How you will make Rochester A Litter Bit Better!
There were 305 entries from 13 schools across Rochester. With all of these fun and colorful entries it was a tough choice but our team of judges narrowed it down to one winner per school (who submitted entries) and one Grand Prize winner.
