Student Billboard Design Contest

Annual billboard designs from Paulding County students

2016 WMEA Recycling Billboard Design Winners

This fall, Becky Suvar, Manager of the WMEA Program, spoke to all the fourth grade students throughout the county.  She spoke about litter prevention, reduce, reuse, and recycle, closing the loop, and other environmental issues.

After explaining to the students what they could recycle, Mrs. Suvar showed them what natural resources were used:  renewable – such as trees, and other resources that are not renewable – such as iron ore or bauxite.

Another point Mrs. Suvar covered was the fourth grade poster contest.  A contest where each fourth grader would create artwork that had the potential of going up on a billboard.  Since there are six Elementary schools and only 4 billboards, there was some intense competition.  The judging was very difficult as there were so many good pictures submitted.  However, the judges persevered and four pieces of artwork were chosen.  These pictures are going up at the beginning of December, so if you are traveling through Paulding County, you may see some of our great artists’ work.

Listed below are the billboard winners and where their artwork will be displayed.
