The Rome-Floyd Litter and Blight Task Force and Keep Rome-Floyd Beautiful recently invited local students to compete in a poster art contest where the winning designs will be utilized for the Keep Rome-Floyd Beautiful 2020 Litter-Free/Blight-Free Campaign.

The committee was overwhelmed by the response for the first year of this contest. A total of 505 entries were received from Rome and Floyd County students. The original plan was to exhibit all entries in a poster art show, but due to the great response, the committee had to select works for the exhibition. 40 poster art works from 9 different schools were selected for the Keep-Rome Floyd Beautiful Poster Art Exhibition to be held at the Rome-Floyd E.C.O. Center on January 23 through February 6.

An exhibition opening and awards celebration will be held on Thursday, January 23 where the winners of the contest will be announced. Awards will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, Honorable Mentions and Most Creative Hashtag.
