We are excited to announce the kickoff of a new poster contest to promote San Francisco’s new anti-litter Giant Sweep campaign. Each  winning entry will be awarded a combined $1,500 prize for the student artist, the sponsoring teacher and the school.


The SF Giant Sweep anti-litter campaign showcases our student’s creativity and communicates the importance of keeping litter off the street. We are looking for dynamic, attention-grabbing posters, created by our students, that convey the spirit of the Giant Sweep Campaign. The goal: Create a culture of clean in San Francisco.


One winner will be selected from each of the three following grade categories: elementary school (K-5), middle school (6-8), and high school (9-12). The prizes: $500 for the student artist, $500 for the sponsoring teacher, and $500 for the school!


The poster contest is a great way for students to show off their artistic talents, get involved in their community and help their schools.


The City, under the direction of the Mayor Ed Lee, is teaming up with the World Champion San Francisco Giants on the Giant Sweep anti-litter campaign. As the campaign grows and more people join the team, Giant Sweep will reach across the entire City. At its core, Giant Sweep is a hands-on educational program targeted at students — encouraging them to join the citywide effort to keep San Francisco clean and beautiful and to help promote good public behavior.


The Giants showed us last year that winning the World Series took a team effort that went far beyond individual heroics. Giant Sweep embodies that same spirit.


Don’t miss out on this great opportunity!  Please see the attached flyer for important details on the Giant Sweep poster competition.


Please feel free to pass this information along to anyone who knows a student, teacher, or school that would be interested in getting into the contest.  Remember… if you don’t enter, you won’t win!
