Seven Days Left to Register for the “Recycle-Bowl” School Recycling Competition
Keep America Beautiful Offers Recycling Educational Resources Within A Fun Competition
STAMFORD, Conn. (Oct. 2, 2012) — Keep America Beautiful’s Recycle-Bowl competition for elementary, middle- and high-school students was created to increase school recycling participation and teach students about recycling and environmental responsibility. To be eligible for cash prizes, registration ends at midnight on Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012.
The Competition Division is open to all U.S. schools and these schools will be eligible to win prizes. At the close of the four-week competition, the school in each state that collects the most recyclable material per capita, generated from school operations only, will win $1,000. The nation’s top-performing school, chosen from among the state champions, will receive an additional $1,000 and $2,500 in store credit from Busch Systems to purchase recycling bins for the school.
Schools that are not based in the U.S. or are home-schooled, or register after Oct. 9, will be placed in the Open Division. These schools are afforded all the same resources as the Competition Division schools, but they are not eligible for cash prizes.
In its inaugural year in 2011, more than 1,200 elementary, middle- and high-schools around the country, representing more than 500,000 students, participated in a fun, interactive way to learn about waste reduction and environmental responsibility through in-school recycling.
Registration and downloadable resources are currently available on the Recycle-Bowl website at http://recycle-bowl.org. Show us your school pride and become Recycle-Bowl’s recycling champion.
Recycle-Bowl is sponsored by Nestlé Waters North America.
