WASHINGTON (April 7, 2016) — Middle-school students from New Hampshire and Hawaii have won the nationwide Youth Video & Poster Contest to promote the value of recycling, according to the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI).
Eleanor Small and Megan Onello, seventh-graders from Hampstead, N.H., won the grand prize in the video category, and Angelica Devers, an eighth-grader from Kapolei, Hawaii, won the grand prize in the poster category, ISRI said.
“Recycling is Bigger than the Bin” was the theme of this year's contest, which was co-sponsored as in past years by ISRI and JASON Learning. Students in grades K-12 were invited to create videos and posters about how items other than the newspapers, aluminum cans and plastic bottles commonly found in recycling bins are recycled.
Submissions had to include information about one or more of the following commodities: tires and rubber, plastic, glass, nonferrous metals, textiles and paper.
