Current Volunteer Opportunities

Help send a message to Lee County citizens by producing a full-color drawing or painting on the theme of “Leave The Scene Clean.”  Students will visualize a correct environmental action and transfer that mental picture into a work of art.  Possible ways of expanding on this theme could include:  litter prevention, clean-up campaigns, beautification efforts such as landscaping and tree planting, protecting the environment, and recycling.  Thirteen first place winners, one from each grade 1 through 12 and an overall winner will be selected.

 

AWARDS: Award Ceremony to be held in fall 2018 (date to be announced).

 

JUDGES: Special committee of KLCB.

JUDGING:

We invite five judges from the community, including a Lee County School District member, to select our winners.  While judging, they are not permitted to look at the back of the entries keeping it completely anonymous.

 

“Thank you for allowing me to be a judge for the Keep Lee County Beautiful "Leave the Scene Clean" calendar contest these past two years. I am in awe of the artistic talent of students in grades K-12. The other judges and I have a difficult time narrowing it down and selecting just the top four drawings from each grade level as finalists. I hope to participate again in the years to come.”
