CORK’S annual Anti-Dog Fouling Awareness campaign kicked off with a prize-giving ceremony this week at the school of the overall winner of the 2019 Primary Schools Poster competition.
The competition now in its fourth year is organised and run by the Dog Fouling Awareness Sub Committee of Cork City Council in conjunction with City Hall’s Litter Management Section.
This year’s overall winner is Dalton Caren, a fourth class pupil from St. Anthonys Boys National School in Ballintemple.
Dalton won a €100 gift voucher, a trophy and €500 for his school and Dalton’s artwork has been made into Cork City Council’s official Anti Dog Fouling Posters for 2019.
The Dog Fouling Awareness Sub Committee, through public awareness campaigns, works to bring about behavioural and attitude change with dog owners’ responsibility to clean up after their dog being to the forefront.
Information stands will be held at Wilton Shopping Centre today and in Blackpool Shopping Centre on Saturday.
