Keep America Beautiful 2nd Annual Recycle Bowl

Friday, September 28, 2012, 10:38 am
Are you looking for a fun and creative way to increase school recycling participation in your community? Keep America Beautiful's second annual Recycle Bowl is a comprehensive nationwide recycling competition for elementary, middle and high-school students.

Open to all schools, the incentive-based recycling competition kicks off again this October and registration is now open on the Recycle Bowl website at http://recycle-bowl.org. The competition runs from October 15-November 9, culminating around America Recycles Day. Participating schools will track and report how much recyclable material they collect for a chance to win prizes.

At the close of the four week competition, 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 the statewide winners to receive an additional $1,000 and a $2,500 store credit to purchase more recycling bins. Schools that collect material from the community will compete in a separate category for first, second and third place cash prizes.
