Litter Sweep Contest

The Litter Sweep Contest is our annual contest that awards volunteer groups with an opportunity to win cash prizes! Groups submit pictures of the most unusual piece of litter found along their adopted route during their spring cleanup to our office. The first place winners will receive $200.00, second place $100.00, and third place $50.00. The winner’s pictures may also be featured on our website, social media, and our newsletter LITTERature. This year, we are awarding every entry to the Litter Sweep Contest! Everyone who submits a photo will win a reusable straw that includes a holder and cleaner.

The Litter Sweep Contest runs for the duration of our clean-up season.
