(Riverdale, March 5th, 2018) – The City of Riverdale’s community beautification program, Keep Riverdale Beautiful, is partnering with Clayton County Public Schools to launch a county-wide art mural competition for their Canvas on the Curb initiative.

The competition is open to high school students (9-12) in Clayton County Public Schools and will begin, Monday, March 5th and end on Monday, March 19th. All concepts and digital renderings must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Canvas on the Curb initiative is aimed at improving and beautifying the City of Riverdale’s local Marta bus stops, sidewalks and street access points.
