“We want to heighten awareness and reduce litter throughout our neighborhoods and city streets,” said Councilmember Remy. “What better way to do that than with a mascot to help spread the message in a fun way.”

The mascot should represent one or more of the following themes:

  • Pride in My City: I am proud to call Columbus my home, and I want to ensure that my city shines for all to see.
  • Green and Clean: Cleaning up litter helps to preserve our environment by keeping waste out of our rivers and parks.
  • The “Litter” of the Law: We respect the laws of our city, and litter is against the rules.

“As a parent of three Columbus City Schools students, I know the talent and creativity that is in our buildings and I want to support them,” Remy continued.

This contest is open to any Columbus City School student. Submissions can be sent mailed, emailed* to or delivered to Columbus City CouncilAttn: Mascot Contest, 90 West Broad Street, Columbus, Ohio 43215
