Trash Truck Student Art Contest 

These initiatives are aligned with the “Keep Oklahoma Beautiful” program, designed to empower Oklahomans to preserve and enhance the state’s natural beauty and ensure a healthy, sustainable environment. To educate on the importance of this mission, the Claremore Public Works office partnered with Claremore Public Schools fifth-graders to host an art contest highlighting pollution prevention. City of Claremore employees selected the top design through a voting process. The winning artwork, designed by Paisley King from Claremont Elementary will be proudly displayed on a city trash truck for the next five years and can be seen at the Household Waste Event.
