Students participate in the garbage can decorating contest.
In celebration of Canada’s 150th, the Town of New Tecumseth is hosting a youth garbage can decorating contest.
Participation was sought through local elementary and high school teachers and 25 classes have confirmed their participation in the contest.
Garbage cans will be displayed during the Canada Day festivities at Riverdale Park in Alliston. Residents are asked to donate a non-perishable food item and vote for their favourite can. The teacher of the winning class will receive a $250 gift card to use towards supplies for their classroom.
Following Canada Day, the garbage cans will be dispersed amongst New Tecumseth parks for residents to enjoy.
The Town extends its appreciation to Alliston Home Hardware Building Centre and Alliston Canadian Tire for their donations of paint to the students participating in the contest.
