The Alton Beautification and Clean City Committee is bringing back its poster contest for area middle school students.  It’s the run-up to the annual city-wide Spring Litter Clean-Up and there are two themes for this year’s contest:  “Don’t Trash My Street,” and “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.”

Alton Beautification and Clean City Committee Chairman Carolyn MacAfee says for the first time, there will be prizes for 2nd and 3rd place in all grades.
