Recycling could win your child’s school thousands
Attention, parents: Your child’s school could win more than $3,000 by participating in the second annual Recycle-Bowl.
Brought to you by Keep America Beautiful and Nestle Waters, the Recycle-Bowl rewards participating schools for collecting recyclable material. At the end of the competition — which runs from Oct. 15 through Nov. 9 — the school in each state that collects the most recyclable material per capita will win $1,000. A national champion will then be chosen from among the statewide winners to receive an additional grand prize valued at $2,500.
Registration for the contest is now open at Recycle-Bowl.org. Visitors to the site will also find educational recycling activities.
“Inspiring young people to recycle at school reinforces the importance of recycling everywhere, whether at home or on the go,” said Matt McKenna, president and CEO of Keep America Beautiful. “And while students are becoming better recyclers, their school facilities are also increasing their capacity to handle and recover more recyclable materials, thus creating better and more efficient systems for reducing their waste.”
Educational recycling activities will also be provided online and through a registration toolkit. Recycle-Bowl is sponsored by Nestle Waters North America.
