Campaign: Recycle-Bowl

(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) September 28, 2011 - 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. Registration for the competition ends on Monday, Oct. 10, 2011.

The Competition Division is open to all U.S. schools. The Open Benchmarking Division was created for individual classrooms to compete against each other. All participating schools will track and report how much recyclable material they collect during the four-week competition. The competition runs from Oct. 17 through Nov. 12, culminating around America Recycles Day, which takes place on Nov. 15.

The first 1,000 schools to register in either the Competition or Open Division will receive a recycling toolkit loaded with recycling posters, a library book, a curriculum, activity booklets and a recycling “coach” t-shirt. Other downloadable educational resources can also be found on http://recycle-bowl.org.

Schools in the Competition Division 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 will win $1,000. A national champion will then be chosen from among the statewide winners to receive an additional grand prize of $2,500.

Registration is currently open on the Recycle-Bowl Web site at http://recycle-bowl.org. Show us your school pride and become Recycle-Bowl’s first-ever recycling champion.

The inaugural Recycle-Bowl is being sponsored by Nestlé Waters North America.
