The Coastal Conservation Association of Florida had an awesome “turnout” for their 2nd Annual Statewide Beach Cleanup this year by using an online app and a tournament layout.

The cleanup is run similar to a fishing tournament, but instead of submitting fish, participants submit their trash collections!

The event was managed through the iAngler Tournament App and website, and for each 5 gallon bucket of trash uploaded, participants received one entry for raffle prizes including Costa Sunglasses, Academy Sports + Outdoors Gift Cards and American Express Gift Cards provided by CCA Florida and iAngler. 

The event involved 98 total participants for one week straight, and was available in the entire state of Florida. Individuals could choose which body of water, beach, canal, etc. they would like to clean up. Together, over 400 buckets of trash was picked up from Florida state waters.

Keep an eye on CCA Florida for any more upcoming virtual events!
