Are you looking for a fun and creative way to increase school recycling participation or maybe begin a school recycling program in your community? Recycle-Bowl, a new nationwide comprehensive school recycling competition, could be your ticket to success.
Keep America Beautiful is announcing the launch of “Recycle-Bowl,” the first comprehensive nationwide recycling competition for elementary, middle and high-school students. Recycle-Bowl was created to provide students with a fun, interactive way to learn about waste reduction and environmental responsibility through in-school recycling.
Open to all schools and classrooms, the incentive-based recycling competition and benchmarking program kicks off this October and registration is now open on the Recycle-Bowl website at http://recycle-bowl.org. The competition runs from October 17 through November 12, 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 among the statewide winners to receive an additional grand prize of $2,500.
Educational recycling activities will also be provided on-line and through a registration toolkit. The inaugural Recycle-Bowl is being sponsored by Nestlé Waters North America.
