Clean Up & Green Up Contest

This year, we invite all elementary, middle and high school students to help promote environmental stewardship by designing a poster and/or video that illustrates this year's theme:
Dream. Draw. Do. Miami-Dade County belongs to YOU!

How do you take pride in Miami-Dade County every day? What do you do on a daily basis to make our community more clean, green, and beautiful? How do you lead your friends, school or family in activities that make a positive impact on our community's image? What is your dream for Miami-Dade County? What actions can other residents take to make Miami-Dade County clean, green and beautiful?

All entries will be accepted January 7, 2019 and must be submitted no later than March 8, 2019.
