Want to help your school show its true green spirit and environmental leadership? Step up and get your school to sign up for the Great American Can RoundUp School Recycling Challenge.
In honor of the the 75th birthday of the recyclable aluminum beverage can, the Can Manufacturers Institute encourages you to challenge your school to see how many beverage cans they can recycle per capita between America Recycles Day (Nov. 15) and Earth Day (April 22, 2011).
The institute, which is the national trade association of can manufacturers and their suppliers, is giving away a total of $56,000. Your school could win up to $6,000, plus the value of the cans and the chance to win $50 pizza cards.
Area schools should register by Nov. 15 to be eligible for the School Recycling Challenge at the Can Central website. Once registered, you will be able to compare your school's recycling progress by state, region and nationwide.
