"Clean Up and Green Up" Contest


Students get to tell the best ways to clean up and green up our streets

Neat Streets Miami invites all elementary, middle, and high school students to design a poster that illustrates what we can do to clean up and green up our streets. High school students are encouraged to also create a two-minute video. The winning posters will be displayed in the lobby of the Stephen P. Clark Government Center in downtown Miami.

Awards will be presented by the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners and will be aired on Miami-Dade TV. The winning video will be featured on Neat Streets Miami’s website and on Miami-Dade TV. Awards include iPads, Kindles, GoPro Camera, and gift certificates. Winning teachers will be also awarded with spa treatments.
