Here’s one contest for some local kids with a can do attitude.
Kindergarteners throughout the county are being asked to collect aluminum cans for the Chester County Solid Waste Authority, the department announced in a recent press release. The most prolific young recyclers will win cash prizes, with $300 going to the top collector.
In addition, each child in the winning class will receive a beanbag replica of Chester County’s own recycling mascot, Reecie Recycle.
The contest officially begins January 1 and ends February 28. Entries are due by March 8.
According to the release, a contact person is required to be designated to coordinate the contest within the kindergarten program at each school.
Prospective participants are being asked to call 610-273-3771 for an official entry form and contest guidelines.
