Fifth grade students throughout Ottawa, Sandusky and Seneca Counties had an opportunity to participate in the District's Billboard Design Contest. Students were encouraged to create a design with a recycling or litter prevention theme.
New this year, the public voted for their favorite billboard designs online.

The top three billboard designs selected from each county are on display within their respective counties. The billboards will be posted throughout the month of April in celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd.

The District would like to congratulate all of the winners, thank all students and teachers for submitting their designs and thank the public for their online participation in choosing their favorite designs.
