Manhattan Beach Community Group introduces 2019 “PEENOT” Sign Competition. One of the greatest challenges for street trees’ survival is dog waste. Many dog owners are unaware of the harm done when their dogs relieve themselves near a tree. In order to educate dog walkers a small sign placed in the tree pit should avoid much of the dog waste problem. The sign should measure 7”(wide) X 5”(high). The ‘Peenot on trees’ signs will be judged on: 1-Originality 2-Communication 3-Simplicity 4 Humor Entries should be sent to peenotontrees@gmail.com by May 30th. There will be three categories: 1) Open to All, 2) Junior High School, and 3) Elementary School. A cash award and a certificate will be given to first place winners in each category. Certificates will be given to each category’s first three runners-up. The award ceremony will take place 7:30 PM June 19th at PS 195 (Irwin Street & Hampton Ave). Winning contestants will have their signs placed in the community to help keep our neighborhood green. All entries should include category (Open, JHS, or Elementary School), as well as contact information. The winners will be notified during the first week of June.
