East Windsor Township Sponsors Recycling Poster Contest for Earth Day for Elementary Students
East Windsor Township Mayor Janice Mironov announced that East Windsor Township, through the Township Clean Communities Committee, is sponsoring a Recycling Poster Contest for all elementary school students to focus on Earth Day. The Theme of the poster is to promote any or all of the “4 R’s” of the Township Recycling Program Logo, which are:
- RECYCLE all items that can be recycled.
- REUSE other items rather than throw them out in the trash.
- REDUCE materials into their homes that then have to be disposed of.
- REBUY - i.e., buy goods that use recycled materials.
Mayor Mironov stated, “The Recycling Poster Contest is to encourage young people, especially as we celebrate Earth Day, to focus on the importance of everyone practicing recycling to protect and preserve our environment. We look forward to our talented students demonstrating, through the posters, their tremendous creativity and true interests in helping to green our earth.”
Student winners from Grades K - 2 and winners from Grades 3 - 5 will receive awards of a Gift Certificate to Barnes and Noble ($75.00, $50.00 and $25.00, respectively, for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place). The awards are being donated by Shiseido America.
Posters should be left by Monday, March 18 at the student’s School’s Administrative Office or the East Windsor Municipal Building Mayor’s Office. Students should be certain that the back of each poster contains the student’s Name, Address, Phone Number, Grade Level and School Attended.
Winners will be notified and awards made by East Windsor Mayor Janice Mironov at an Earth Day ceremony at the Tuesday April 16 Council meeting. Winning posters will be displayed in the municipal building lobby through the month of May.
