The Greenbrier West High School junior's entry will appear on the coalition's stationery and official documents. Miss Milam's logo features the organization's name in dark blue let- ters on a grey background, with the admonition, "Don't litter" in red let- ters on either side. In the center is a green outline of the county onto which a drawing of a grey trash can is placed. The words "Help Keep Greenbrier County Green," printed in black, surround ~the county out- line. Erin Boone, a student at Alder- son Junior High School, was named the $100 grand prize winner of the poster division. The winning poster entry pictures a pair of "space ali- ens" reconsidering their plans to land on Earth as they look down on the litter-strewn planet. "We can't land! There's no room!" one says, while the other exclaims, "Earth is covered with litter!" Coalition president Curt Keesee of Smoot said the group hopes to receive help from the West Virginia University Extension Service to de- velop the winning poster into high- way signs to be placed at major en- trances into the county. The poster contest was open to all elementary and junior high school students throughout G~eenbrier County. Each school picked first, second, and third places n grade bracket's 1-3 4-6, and 7-9. The final nine posters from each school were exhibited for two weeks in the Old Stone Room of Carnegie Hall in Le- wisburg, where they were judged. The Westvaco Corporation provided one-and-a-half tons of poster paper for t he entries. The logo contest was open to all high school students. The three Io- gos judged best at each of the two county high schools were entered and displayed in the final competi- tion. "The quality of these posters and Iogos made it very difficult to decide Greenbrier's Blaker's Mill Re-erected at Jackson's Mill ! i which were the best," judge Betty McClung said. "There were a lot of original ideas expressed here," another judge, Jeanne Brenneman, said. According to Mr Keesee, "The purpose of the contest was to start an anti-litter 'mind-set' in our young citizens. This is where to start in de- veloping good attitudes." The effort was handled through the teachers and administrators of each school. Every student who made a poster or logo received a certificate of partici- pation and appreciation. Those who posters and logo were selected to be exhibited and judged were given certificates. An awards reception will be held April 19, 6 p.m., at Carnegie Hall. The Greenbrier County Litter Control Coalition was organized in 1989 with the assistance of the West Virginia Department of Natural Resources and financial assistance from the Kellogg Foundation. Its purpose is to promote anti-litter ef- forts throughout the county. The group hopes to have a similar school-related event each year, ac- cording to Mr Keesee.
