An exhibition opening and awards celebration will take place Thursday, Jan. 23 at the Rome-Floyd E.C.O. Center to honor local students who participated in a recent poster art contest. The event will begin at 6 p.m. and the awards announced at 6:30 p.m.

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, having received 505 entries 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.

Forty poster art works from nine different schools were selected for the Keep-Rome Floyd Beautiful Poster Art Exhibition hichthrough February 6.

Awards will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, Honorable Mentions and Most Creative Hashtag.
