The La Vergne Stormwater Department is looking for help from local kids ahead of this year's annual stream clean-up.
They're asking 4th and 5th graders to help design a poster around the theme "Keep La Vergne Beautiful" and should reflect the need to keep our streams, creeks, channels, and lakes clean.
