Street & Stream Poster Competition

Every year, the Town of Orono sponsors a cleanup event to encourage friends, neighbors and community organizations to join us for a fun day of cleaning up the streets followed by a barbecue at the Orono Public Library. We need your help getting the word out about this fun (and important) event! Please enter our poster competition - if you win your age group, you will receive a $50 gift card and see your art work posted all over Orono! Here are the details: 

Rules: 

• Entries must be submitted by 04/27/20

• Posters should be on 11” x 17” paper, portrait-oriented, but smaller paper size may be used if 11” x 17” paper is not available. 

• Posters must be the original design and creation of the entrant(s). Colored pencils are not recommended because they are hard to reproduce. 

• Computer graphics may be used, but must be created by the entrant(s) (clipart in the public domain is acceptable). If a digital poster is created, the file may be submitted by email to bryder@orono.org instead of printed. Submission information should include name, grade, teacher and address.
