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: Ocean to Everglades (O2E)

Huddle up, Miami-Dade County! Neat Streets Miami is teaming up with the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee to support its Ocean to Everglades (O2E) environmental initiative and we need YOUR help! We're challenging students in grades 1 through 12 to create a poster or 2-minute video that highlights the important issues facing the health of the ocean and the Everglades such as debris and plastics, coastal erosion and impacts on habitat.
