Recycling Poster Contest Winners!
Members of Rockville’s Environment Commission brought presentations about the importance of recycling to students in the city’s mentoring program in March. Following the presentations, 56 students created posters designed to raise awareness about the recycling tips and trivia they learned. The top posters from each mentoring site, as voted by students, were submitted to the Environment Commission, which selected the contest winner. The winning poster, by a Ritchie Park Elementary School fifth-grader named Carrie, will be featured in Rockville’s recycling outreach materials. See all the winning posters below.
