Community Projects

Contest Adds Art to Parks



In 2017 the contest was created and organized by sixth-grade students from Wentzville Middle School who wanted to make a difference in our community through a program called Earth Force. To learn more about this and other student-led civic action projects, please visit the GREEN project homepage.

The students had many partners in the first two years of the projects including: the Friends of the Wentzville Parks, GM, Earth Force and the City of Wentzville. The goal was to tackle litter in our city and parks. The contest has been a great success and thanks to the Wentzville Parks and Recreation Department; the contest continues today! This summer 23 art-clad trash cans decorate our park and inspire visitors to keep our City clean.

The art-clad trash are placed in parks throughout Wentzville parks. Try to find them all!

Try to find the 23 decorated cans in these Wentzville parks!
