Lessons in litter-acy

Pupils from across Belfast are being challenged to influence their peers in a competition to tackle the problem of littering.

Belfast City Council is inviting students from post-primary schools to come up with their own anti-litter message which will be incorporated into the council’s ‘Littering. It’s not a good look’ campaign.

The ‘Litter-ally Yours’ competition, which is being sponsored by AV Browne Group, will give pupils the opportunity of winning £1,000 worth of equipment for their school, as well as influencing the council campaign and helping to make it relevant for its target audience.

Councillor Ian Adamson, chairman of the council’s Health and Environmental Services Committee, said: “We’ve been receiving very positive feedback about our anti-litter campaign which was launched at City Hall in June.

Any school interested in taking part must register with Belfast City Council by Friday, October 8.
