The South Fulton Beautification Project is looking for entries from young artists for the Mayor’s Restore Our Earth artwork and coloring contest.
South Fulton students in Kindergarten through sixth grade are asked to draw pictures depicting what Earth Day means to them. They can download coloring pages at www.cityofsouthfultonga.gov/3091/SouthFulton-Beautification-Project or draw their own artwork.
The city will accept entries from Monday, April 19, through Friday, April 30. Early entries may appear on the city’s social media channels on Earth Day, which is Thursday, April 22. The city will announce winners on Friday, May 7. Parents can email entries with contact information – including name, number, and e-mail address – to [email protected].
Readers can also watch The South Fulton Beautification Lunch and Learn Series on the City of South Fulton YouTube page. The mini-series will feature five episodes with various city leaders reading children’s books about recycling, creativity, and using the imagination to change the world. A new segment airs each Friday at 12:30 p.m.
Although Earth Day is on a Thursday, the city will come together on Friday to host two events to give residents the opportunity to shred documents and donate gently used clothing items and children’s books at the Drive-Up and Drop-Off Earth Day Service Event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Sandtown Recreation Center at 5320 Campbellton Road. The donation drive is sponsored in partnership with District 1 Councilwoman Catherine F. Rowell; the South Fulton Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs Department, and the National Kidney Foundation.
