Ottawa, Sandusky and Seneca County 5th Grade students had the opportunity to participate in the OSS Solid Waste District’s Billboard Contest. The contest is run annually and the billboards will be posted throughout the month of April in Celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd. Students were encouraged to create a design with a recycling or litter prevention theme. District staff selected three winners from each county, displaying artwork on billboards within their respective counties.

- Madelynne Schurdell – Danbury Middle School
All of the winners and their schools received a replica mini billboard featuring their artwork. Students also received an eco friendly fleece sweatshirt made from recycled PET plastic (soda bottles). The District would like to congratulate all of the winners and thank all students who participated in the contest.
