Winfield Middle School seventh-grader Whitlee Satterlee was among the 13 winners, one from each grade, to be featured in the Kansas Department of Health and Environment’s 2020 Keep It Clean Kansas Calendar competition.

KDHE Secretary Dr. Lee Norman and the Bureau of Waste Management team recognized the winners at a reception Nov. 6 in Topeka.

This is the 21st anniversary of the Keep It Clean Kansas calendar. Each year, students in grades K-12 from across Kansas are encouraged to submit their artwork for a chance to be featured in the annual calendar. These pieces of art promote a healthy and clean Kansas through environmentally friendly practices such as reducing, reusing, recycling and composting. This KICK Calendar project was created to encourage students to be engaged in environmental issues in their communities.

Keep It Clean Kansas is a program of KDHE’s Bureau of Waste Management.
