PALS: Celebrating Anti-Litter Advocates


Students from across the state are recognized for the PALS Poster and Recycled Art Contest.

The Annual Alabama PALS Governor’s Awards luncheon is right around the corner! It will be held Nov. 7 at the Marriott Capitol Hill in Prattville at noon and will recognize outstanding anti-litter advocates throughout the state.  In addition to recognizing individuals and businesses, we also give awards to outstanding schools that participate in the Clean Campus Program. The school that receives the "Clean Campus Scrapbook Contest Award" will receive a $1,000 scholarship!

Our Governor’s Awards are also a time to recognize the winners of our annual Poster and Recycled Art Contests.  The first-place winners from each category will receive a $200 check at the luncheon! In total, PALS recognizes around 20 students throughout the state in our contests.  This year’s first place winners in each category are as follows:


First-Third Grade Poster: Peyton Crager, Fruitdale School, Washington County

Fourth-Sixth Grade Poster: Sara Roy, Gwin Elementary, Jefferson County

Seventh-12th Recycled Art: Hannah Fuller & Nikita Rozanova, Arab High School, Marshall County

A full list of winners can be found in the most recent Alabama PALS Newsletter or online at www.alpals.org.


If your local school is not already a part of the Clean Campus Program, have them check us out online or give me a call at (334) 263-7737 to get connected. The Clean Campus Program is FREE to all Alabama public and private schools and strives to create lifelong stewards of our environment through education.
