Outside the Box
Lincoln Students Place Third in the K-4 band, “Think Outside the Bag” National Contest, and First in their Category!
Students across the country were invited to focus their minds and efforts to engage people to recycle plastic bags through the "Think Outside the Bag!" plastic film recycling contest, sponsored by Jason Learning and the Plastic Industry Trade Association, along with support from Hilex Poly, a plastic bag manufacturer. This contest challenged students to use creativity to increase the recycling of plastic bags and influence others to recycle, including product wrapping, dry cleaner bags and grocery bags.
Ms. Moran’s Lincoln Avenue students created a beautiful basket using these materials, and students created posters urging consumers to recycle. Their posters and baskets were entered in to the “Think Outside the Bag” national contest, accompanied by a power point. Their work was reviewed by a panel at the Plastic Trade Industry Conference held in Houston, Texas last week, and their work was awarded third place in the K-4 band and first place in their category! The team will receive a plaque, student certificates, and $250 in which the students wish to purchase science-related books for our library.
Congratulations to Ms. Moran and her Lincoln Avenue students! We thank them for their important work!
