I received an exciting new submission from Project PUT: Pick Up Trash, a blog started by Eloise and her mom Emily. They saw their community in Vermont covered with litter and decided to take action by picking up trash together. Together they wrote new lyrics and created a theme song for Project PUT. Eloise and Project PUT received a poster in the mail for this winning submission:
THE PROJECT PUT (Pick Up Trash) THEME SONG:
THIS LAND FOR YOU AND ME
Sing to the Tune of AMERICA: MY COUNTRY ‘TIS OF THEE
Words by Eloise and her mom Emily
This land for you and me
Protect its beauty
With Project PUT.
Pick Up Trash you see
It’s simple as can be
Let’s make nature garbage free
And improve the world.
