Talkin' Trash Recycling Contest

Every month, the top three winning schools will receive a plaque, a computer for their school, a recycled content prize for each 4th grader, and a visit from the Talkin' Trash crew! The students will also get a chance to appear on television.

The top three schools that demonstrate the most recycling during the course of the Talkin' Trash contest will be deemed the Grand Prize winners and the fourth graders from those schools will go on a fun-filled educational field trip. Lunch and transportation will be provided.
