KCB Art Winners Featured in Board of County Commissioners Chambers

April Artist of the Month showcases the talented winners of the 2025 Keep Collier Beautiful Calendar Art Contest. For 26 years, Keep Collier Beautiful has diligently organized this art contest, with invaluable support from Collier County’s Solid Waste Division. 

Collier County students, spanning from first grade to twelfth grade, are encouraged annually to submit original artwork that emphasizes recycling, proper disposal, and their passion for the environment. Through this initiative, Keep Collier Beautiful actively involves students in safeguarding our precious natural resources and the unique wildlife that graces Southwest Florida. The effort to engage with students across public, charter, and private schools is substantial, but the outcomes are truly remarkable.

Hundreds of students contribute their artwork each year. Many of these talented students also participate in Keep Collier Beautiful’s annual community-wide cleanups, including the Great American Cleanup on April 20th and the International Coastal Cleanup on September 21st this year.
