Truck Wrapping Art Contest in Lawrenceburg


As Republic Services rolls out the carts for their new county-wide recycling program, an exciting contest is now underway! Through a partnership with Bluegrass Greensource, the new recycling truck providing the curbside pickup is getting a makeover by one of Anderson County’s own elementary school students. The contest was originally planned to be open to all elementary schools within the county, but because of the initiative shown by Emma B. Ward faculty and staff from the very beginning, they were selected as the flagship school for the contest.

The design process was administered by the school’s Art Teacher, Stachia Serafini, where she worked with her 3rd – 5th grade students over the course of several weeks. Of all the entries she received, 21 were selected as her semifinalists and then passed along to Bluegrass Greensource staff. These 21 submissions were then narrowed down through a voting process among Greensource staff to determine the top five finalists. These finalists are now being voted upon by a panel of community leaders comprised of Judge Executive Orbrey Gritton, Lawrenceburg Mayor Sandy Goodlett, AC Superintendent Sheila Mitchell, Chamber of Commerce Director Pam Brough, and Greg Butler from Republic Services.

Once a winner has been decided upon there will be a special unveiling ceremony to introduce the new truck and offer special congratulations to the winner of the contest. This event will also provide a great opportunity to bring together the community to learn more about the new recycling program and the many ways these services benefit Anderson County, its residents, and the environment as a whole
