2015 Contest

The Lens on Litter Contest focuses public attention on the problems that litter causes. From attracting vermin, to harming wildlife, to degrading our land and waterways, litter impacts the entire state.

We encourage students and adults to enter the 2015 Lens on Litter Contest, which is already open for submissions!  The deadline for entries is October 31.

A huge thank you to Lens on Litter's 2014 sponsors - AAA Mid-Atlantic, Inc., Sheetz, Inc., and Wawa.
