Clean and Green Logo Contest winners

The overall winner was this design by Rees Erickson, a fifth-grader at the School of Innovation.

Lake County’s Solid Waste District is pleased to announce the winners of their annual Clean and Green Logo Contest. Area students were encouraged to design a logo showcasing the theme “Clean and Green Lake County” which promotes recycling and anti-littering education.  The Lake County Solid Waste District oversees the Landfill and Recycling Center in Painesville Township.

A total of 875 student artists submitted entries from thirteen elementary schools, six middle schools, and five local high schools.

Rees Erickson, a fifth-grade student at The School of Innovation in the Willoughby-Eastlake School District, won the elementary division and the overall prize for her design entry themed, “Help Keep Lake County Clean & Green.”  As the top winner, Rees’s design will be displayed in the county administration building in downtown Painesville.  Additionally, her design will be used for marketing materials for the Solid Waste District and the Utilities Department. 

Each of the division winners was honored during the Lake County Board of Commissioners meeting on April 21 and were given a prize of art supplies to continue their passion of design.  
Congratulations to all the winners!
