Stash the Trash Art contest

If your child likes to draw have them enter this contest for a chance to win some money and get their art displayed on a truck.

Keep Lubbock Beautiful annual educational campaign for “Stash the Trash” is an effort to address the problem of litter in Lubbock. Trash on the streets, in parks, alleys, and yards makes the Lubbock community look unattractive, but more importantly it is unsanitary. Trash all around is unhealthy for people, animals and the environment. We need our parks and neighborhoods to be free of trash. The City of Lubbock needs to be a place where families want to live and play. All it takes is for each person to remember to pick up after themselves.

Youth can help by drawing a picture that reminds people to be responsible and to place their trash in the trash can or dumpster. We know youth can make a difference by sharing their ideas of how to communicate “Stash the Trash and Keep Lubbock Beautiful” with our community.

Sept 15th thru Oct 15th 
Hispanic Heritage Month is an official celebration of American citizens whose ancestry can be traced back to Spain, Mexico, Central and South America and the Caribbean. The festival now lasts from September 15 to October 15 every year, but it first started out as just a week long celebration of in 1968. Twenty years later, in 1988 it expanded to dedicate a whole four weeks for the celebration of being Hispanic.

The celebration starts in the middle of the month, as opposed to the end, because the 15th marks the independence days of five Latin America countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile, and Belize follow shortly after, on the 16th, 18th and 21st.

Hispanic Heritage Month “pays tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society,” according to the official website.
