South County Students Win Recycling Art Contest

July 2010

“Do Your Part, Get it in the Cart!” The student who best demonstrated that theme in a recycling poster contest can now view his art in a BIG way through September 5, 2010 on a billboard facing southbound I-55 at Butler Hill Rd.  The winner, Joshua Richter, was a fourth grader from St. Francis of Assisi School this spring when Saint Louis County Department of Health sponsored the art contest to promote continued use of the large recycling carts distributed free to residents in 2008. In addition to the billboard, Joshua’s art is currently playing on all screens as an ad before movies at Ronnies Wehrenberg Theatre located at 5320 S. Lindbergh Boulevard. Joshua is sharing screen time with Emma West, a 7th grader and Tylor Sinak, a 2nd grader, both from Queen of All Saints School, who were the winners in their age categories. The Department of Health also awarded each school who had a winner with a $1,000 grant to help them with their school recycling program.  View the winning posters here.
