TULSA, Okla. - The City of Broken Arrow and Broken Arrow Public Schools are partenering to launch a new anti-littering campaign with the unveiling of the official sign as part of Earth Day 2019.
Broken Arrow High School junior, Paige Arnold, submitted the winning design in an art competition in October. The competions goal was to get ideas for a slogan and mascot to help tell people about the importance of keeping creeks and waterways clean.
“Earth Day is an important day because it reminds everyone that the earth is our most valuable resource,” said Broken Arrow Mayor Craig Thurmond. “We need to continue to conserve our natural resources and become better stewards of the planet. We also need to research and adopt alternative sources of energy whenever and wherever possible.”
The sign will be unveiled at 9 a.m., April 22, at Tiger Creek Nature Park. Students from sciences classes will also be cleaning the creek for Earth Day.
