Charleville Tidy Towns Anti Litter Art Competition

THE ANTI LITTER POSTER COMPETITION which was kindly sponsored by Da Vinci Creative was a tremendous success with 400 entries submitted to Charleville Tidy Towns. Entries were received from Holy Family School, St Joseph’s Primary School, St Anne’s Primary School, CBS Primary School, St. Mary’s Secondary School and CBS Secondary School. The aim of the competition was to raise awareness in the community of the need to dispose properly of litter. The Anti-litter Challenge run by Cork County Council is underway at the moment and will continue till 20 June.
The judges were very impressed by the creativity shown by all participants and found the task of selecting winners very difficult. All the posters are currently on display in the library and we would encourage everyone to visit and enjoy the work of our young students. We thank the staff of Charleville Library for facilitating the prizegiving and the exhibition of posters.
Students, teachers and parents assembled in the library on Tuesday at 12 0’clock for the presentation of prizes. All were welcomed by CTT Chairman, Mr. John Mc Mahon who thanked them for their participation and thanked their teachers who supported the competition. He thanked Mr Adrian Wells of Da Vinci Creative for his very generous sponsorship. Cllr Ian Doyle added his thanks and invited Mr. Wells to present the prizes. Each winner was presented with a T-shirt and poster printed by Da Vinci Creative bearing the winner’s individual design. Da Vinci kindly printed sets of posters of each design which will be displayed in many outlets in Charleville. CTT is very grateful to Adrian and Esie for their support and valued sponsorship.
Please heed the message on these beautiful, colourful posters which you will see displayed in various outlets and help us to keep Charleville tidy.
