Clean and Green Art Contest Winners

The Lake County Solid Waste District is pleased to announce the winners of their annual Clean and Green Art Contest.  Area students were encouraged to design an original art piece 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.

Sara Hussain, a 12th-grade student at South High School in the Willoughby-Eastlake School District, won the high school division and the overall prize for her design entry themed, “Keep Lake County Clean & Green.” As the top winner, Sara’s design will be displayed in the Lake County Commissioner’s chambers in the County Administration Building located in downtown Painesville.  Additionally, her design will be used for marketing materials for the Solid Waste District and the Utilities Department.

“Of all the decisions we have to make up here, this one was difficult. When you saw the caliber of all the artwork we had to look at, the skill levels were impressive.  Congratulations to our winners and thank you for making Lake County clean and green,” said Commissioner Richard J. Regovich.
