We can never take for granted our beautiful hometown. We have clean air, many trees and wildlife, rivers and streams, mountains and so much more. Thousands of tourists visit our town throughout the year to enjoy what we get to see every day! We have an environment these people want to experience. And we have a responsibility to keep it clean and beautiful.

You can help by entering our contest, showing how an asphalt plant in a peaceful community would change your hometown. Draw a before and after picture and send it in by August 10, 2020. Not only can you win a prize, but you get to participate in a civic project, sharing your art with even our County Commissioners! This is a great way to speak up for the town you love and make a difference to our environment.

There are places for asphalt plants, but not in the middle of our residential communities, woods, and wildlife sanctuaries.

ENTER TO WIN AND HELP SAVE OUR ENVIRONMENT. Entries will be judged based on creativity, originality, and use of color.
