Such efforts impressed Swift, who now wants to work with Petruzzi to provide a sustainability education program.

 Swift also visited Carleigh Fowler of Walker Elementary School, her school’s lone participant in the poster competition.

Some students gave insight on what went into their poster.

"I made a poster where you pick up trash, and not litter," Azlynn Swabb, 9, said. "I made a place where you can cremate the trash, instead of putting it into a huge landfill. Sometimes, landfills, they get into the ocean and kill lots of animals."

 Cayden Hatfield, 10, said he hopes his poster will pass along one simple message.

"The world is not a giant trash can," he said. "We have to work hard to not trash our precious world."
