Keep Darlington County Beautiful announced recently the two winners of its annual art contest. Maggie Jordan of Hartsville High School earned first place in the event, and Hannah Jewel of Hartsville Middle School earned second place.

Students who choose to participate in the contest must create works of art using Palmetto Pride’s colors of blue and green as well as the organization’s slogan of “Keep Darlington County clean in 2018.” The contest aims to promote the importance of not littering.

This year’s contest generated hundreds of entries from 4K through 12th grade.

The organization printed the artwork of Jordan and Jewel on official t-shirts. Both students also received gift cards, hand-delivered by Gary White and Renee Howle from Keep Darlington County Beautiful.

Each year, Palmetto Pride funds the cost of gloves, vests, trash grabbers and trash bags when Keep Darlington County Beautiful participates in the Great American Cleanup throughout April, May and June.
