Anti-littering sign design competition opens for County students

March 1, 2024

March 1, 2024

The County of Prince Edward is asking young residents for their help educating the public about the negative impacts of littering and illegal dumping.

The municipality is inviting County students to submit design ideas for new anti-littering signs. The winning design will be used on signs near areas where littering and dumping commonly occur and in local newspapers.

“The County is a beautiful place full of rich biodiversity and scenic views. Unfortunately, littering has made these views a little less beautiful,” Mayor Steve Ferguson says. “Many natural places that were once home to our flora and fauna are tarnished by dumped garbage. These irresponsible acts are impacting future generations’ enjoyment of the natural environment. That’s why we want young people to take this opportunity to send a message through this contest.”

  • Students must use the sign template provided, create a catchy anti-littering slogan and a graphic that depicts the importance of not littering or dumping. Entry packages can be attained from local libraries, PEC teachers and online.
  • Designs must be submitted to communications@pecounty.on.ca or dropped off at Shire Hall (332 Picton Main Street) by Monday, April 1 at 3 pm.
  • The winning design will be announced at the April 9 Council Meeting, where the recipient will receive an award from Mayor Ferguson.

If you would like more information, contact Albert Paschkowiak, Environmental Services and Sustainability Supervisor, at apaschkowiak@pecounty.on.ca or call 613.476.2148 extension 4004.
