In honor of Earth Month 2019, three of the winning entries were painted on two storm drains in Germantown with help from three of the winners and 18 volunteers!
Check out some of the photos of the painting day.
The contest was hosted in partnership with the UpCounty Regional Services Center in collaboration with the County’s Department of Transportation, Montgomery Parks, the Muddy Branch Alliance and Seneca Creek Watershed Partners. The Storm Drain Art Contest helps educate people about litter issues.
The 2019 winners were selected from 14 entries by a panel of judges and the public. The contest was open to County residents of all ages.
