To focus attention on the environmental problem of littering, the Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) announces its 27th annual Lens On Litter Photo Contest, with a deadline of Oct. 31.
Use your camera to identify the worst examples of litter in your Pennsylvania community.
The contest is open to amateur photographers only. Contestants will be divided into two classes: schoolage children and adults. Eight prizes, four to each group, will be awarded, with first place winners receiving $1,000 in cash, second place $500, third place $250 and The People's Choice Award of a digital camera.
The contest identifies sites PRC then targets for clean up through local action. In the past five years, litter has been removed from more than 300 sites.
Send entries (limit three per person) to the Pennsylvania Resources Council, 3606 Providence Road, Newtown Square, PA 19073. All entries must contain the following information on the back of the photo: entrant's name, address, telephone number, title given to photo and location of litter site. Children's entries must also include the school grade and school name.
For further information, call the Pennsylvania Resources Council at (610) 353-1555.
