About the Contest

Anaheim Beautiful is proud to present the 2nd Annual Anaheim Community Pride Poster Contest. The contest is presented by the City of Anaheim Department of Public Works, Code Enforcement Division and Republic Services in partnership with the elementary school districts in the City of Anaheim. Community Pride is a contest offered to all public schools in Anaheim for students 1st through 6th grade. Our mission is to promote and bring awareness to anti-littering, anti-graffiti and recycling.

Contest Overview

The Community Pride Poster Contest is available for all Anaheim elementary public schools. Students in grades 1st through 6th are invited to create a poster conveying one of the following Community Pride themes:

Recycling • Graffiti-Free • Litter-Free

First-place winners, per grade level, from each participating school will move on to the next phase of the contest for a district-wide competition.
