The Dorchester Youth Council, led by SCI AmeriCorps Members, invited youth to help bring awareness to the litter problem in the community, help increase public knowledge of the impacts of litter and provide ways everyone can make a difference in keeping Dorchester litter-free.
The Dorchester Youth Council will judge the PSA entries and award cash prizes to the three groups that create the best Anti-Littering PSAs. Youth groups from all around the Dorchester area have joined in the competition including Upward Bound UMASS Boston, BCYF Grove Hall Community Center, and the Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester.
The contest was made possible in part by a donation from SCI of $1000.
You can see several of the video PSA entries on the mydorchester website here.
