Students and Educators Encouraged to Join PRC Lens on Litter Photo Contest

Posted by: admin on September 3, 2020

The new school year brings new opportunities for students, teachers, parents and other adults to focus on the environment and the litter that might be spoiling the health and beauty of their communities and surrounding areas. The Gene Capaldi Lens on Litter Photo Contest aims not to glorify litter, but to bring awareness to the litter problem in the Commonwealth.

The deadline for submissions is October 31st. Amateur photographers (students through 12th grade and adults) can submit photos of unsightly litter in their Pennsylvania communities for a chance to win 1st Place ($500), 2nd Place ($250) and 3rd Place ($100) prizes for both “adult” and “student” categories.

Questions may be directed to [email protected] and all the details, previous winners and an online entry form can be found at
