The top artists in UGRA’s River Clean Up art contest to design the event t-shirt were recognized recently by UGRA’s Outreach and Education Committee Chair, Diane McMahon.

“UGRA appreciates the River Clean Up drawings submitted for our annual t-shirt contest.  We hope that the message in all of the drawings inspires each of us to protect the beauty and health of our river,” said McMahon.

The design contest winner, Belia Gomez, received a certificate of achievement and a $100 check. Second place winner, Gabriela Lara, and third place winner, Cody Vlasek, received certificates of achievement and $50 and $25 checks, respectively.

Belia and Gabriela just finished 6th grade at B.T. Wilson and Cody was a 6th grader at Hunt ISD.

The 17th Annual River Clean Up will be held on Saturday, July 25, 2020 at Flat Rock Park and the first 300 volunteers will receive a free t-shirt with Belia’s artwork highlighted on the front.
