This challenge is designed to get local students, who are among the primary litterers, involved in fighting littering by creating local litter commercials to raise awareness.  The contest has entered its second year and drew 12 different commercials from student teams at all three local high school, St. John, Plaquemine High and MSA West.

The winning team won a $500 gift card donated by Axiall Corp., and the City will air their commercial on local cable.
