Lakewood is looking for hometown artists to create the design for the city’s annual Earth Day Celebration. The winning design will be used on posters, banners, T-shirts and other materials, and the artist receives $200. The theme for 2019’s event is “Every day is earth day, but today we celebrate!”

Each year, communities across the world celebrate Earth Day as a way to increase awareness of environmental issues. Lakewood’s free event celebrating sustainability is set for April 27, and will include a chance to recycle old or broken electronics and volunteer projects at Bear Creek Lake Park hosts a volunteer project to honor Earth Day. Volunteers of all ages work on various projects throughout the park.

Designs are due by Dec. 31 at Lakewood.org/EarthDay.
