By From page A4 | February 20, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Children from kindergarten through high school who live in Fairfield and Suisun City and on Travis Air Force Base are invited to participate in an Earth Day poster contest.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle is the theme of the contest sponsored by Solano Garbage Co. and parent company Republic Services. Posters can be created using paint, crayons, color pencils or color markers. No computer-generated artwork or three-dimensional artwork will be accepted.

There are three categories: elementary, middle school and high school. Each category will have three winners, with a $50 gift card being awarded for first place, a $30 card for second place and a $20 card for third place. Participants must submit entries by 5 p.m. April 11 to Solano Garbage Co. at 2901 Industrial Court in Fairfield.

All entries will be exhibited. Awards are to be presented April 26 during the Fairfield Earth Day Celebration at the Civic Center Park.
