Santa Clarita will officially turn 30 years old on December 15, and the city is hosting the “30 Things for 30 Years” contest for local elementary school students.
Local elementary students are invited to join in and celebrate creatively by coming up with a tribute to the city’s 30th anniversary. All schools who participate will have the chance to win a party on December 15.
Use your imagination! Collect 30 bags of non-perishable food items to donate, have your class write 30 poems, have the entire school do 30 jumping jacks, stand in the shape of a 30 on the playground, plant 30 plants in your school garden, research 30 historical facts about the city, take 30 pictures of 30 oak trees, walk for 30 minutes, draw 30 pictures of city locations, collect 30 items that represent Santa Clarita, choose 30 items to put in a time capsule, whatever 30 things you choose to celebrate the city’s 30th birthday.
You can enter as an individual student, group of friends, a class or club, or the entire school. Entry must be submitted from an elementary school student, teacher or school within Santa Clarita city limits.
Participants may enter online or by mail. The deadline for submissions is Friday, November 24 at 5 p.m.
A compilation of the entries will be presented to the City Council at the council meeting on Tuesday, November 28 and a winner will be announced.
