The 11th annual "I Love My Neighborhood" poster contest awards were held Wednesday evening, April 14, at the Glendale Civic Auditorium, and several of the top finalists were from Crescenta Valley schools.
Glendale Unified School District public schoolchildren, along with students from several private schools, entered the contest to draw a poster with the theme, "Litter No More in 2004." This year saw a record 10,000 students enter the contest.
The contest is sponsored by the Committee for a Clean and Beautiful Glendale. Committee representative Lisa McMurray said the mascot for the litter prevention program is a small donkey named Litter Not. Several of the students used this mascot in their posters.
