The Town of New Tecumseth is hosting a youth garbage can decorating contest in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday.
25 classes have confirmed their participation in the contest from local elementary and high schools.
All of the garbage cans will be displayed during the Canada Day festivities at Riverdale Park in Alliston.
A $250 gift card to use towards supplies for their classroom will be awarded to the teacher of the winning class.
Residents can vote for their favourite can and are asked to donate a non-perishable food item.
Once the celebrations are over, the cans will be placed throughout New Tecumseth parks for residents to enjoy.
Alliston Home Hardware Building Centre and Alliston Canadian Tire donated paint to the students participating in the contest.
