Whether a school has an extensive recycling program or is just getting basic recycling collections off the ground, experience has shown that all schools have potential to increase their recycling rates. Recycle-Bowl provides a tool for teachers, student green teams and facility service professionals to engage their K-12 school community in a fun and friendly way.
Register. Recycle. Report.
Think your school has game? Register to enter the competition online at www.Recycle-Bowl.org. To compete, your school will collect, track and then report your recyclable material during a four-week timeframe from mid-October to mid-November.
The National Title: America's Top Recycling School! A national champion will be chosen from the top state winners to receive an additional prize.
School Division Champions: A winner from each U.S. state and the District of Columbia will receive national recognition and bragging rights based on the most recycled material per person, per school.
Involve your community: To keep things fair, if your school collects recyclable material from around the community or parent's homes, this will be treated as a separate division. Schools will track the amount of material recovered per person and will compete with other schools on a national level. The Community Division offers another opportunity to receive national recognition as a Division Champion.
