Keep America Beautiful, the nation’s leading nonprofit that brings people together to build and sustain vibrant communities, announced the Washington, DC winner of “Recycle-Bowl,” a comprehensive nationwide recycling competition for elementary, middle and high school students.
Recycle-Bowl, sponsored by Nestlé Waters North America (NWNA), reached more than 900,000 students across America with schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia competing.
Accepting the award at the Keep America Beautiful National Conference was Corey Miles, Green Team Captain from Kimball Elementary. This is Kimball’s second year winning the prize.
The school has an active Green Team that collects recyclables from classrooms, offices and the cafeteria on a weekly basis. Students throughout the building learn the importance of saving the Earth, with messages of reducing, recycling and reusing.
