The Meramec Regional Planning Commission has announced that Baylee Crum, a 5th grader, received second place in the 32nd Annual Earth Day Poster, Trash, and Graphic Art contest. This year’s contest theme was “Rescue Earth’s Resources: Become a First Responder for the Planet.” Crum, who participates in the Rolla Outdoors Collaborative School and is homeschooled in Pulaski County submitted a piece for the trash art contest depicting an animal using bottle caps, soda tabs, and leaves.
The Ozark Rivers Solid Waste Management District Earth Day Art Contest is in its 32nd year, and the contest required participants to re-purpose trash into three-dimensional pieces of art or create posters (hand drawn or graphically designed), based on the year’s theme. There were 573 entries from 15 schools in the district and one homeschool group. The contest was open to kindergarten through 12th grade, homeschool, college and university students who reside or attend school in Crawford, Dent, Gasconade, Maries, Phelps, Pulaski and Washington counties.
