About the Event

All schools in Perry County are challenged to participate!  Let's see who can reduce their waste the most throughout the school year, leading up to Earth Day, April 22nd!

1.  Score your entry on honor system

2.  Conduct waste audit (see here for instructions)

3.  Create an "Express your 3R Self" TikTok entry

4.  Create exhibit for 2022 Earth Day Celebration

See below for instructions!

5.  Submit entry on or before April 15, 2022!

Each school is challenged to investigate the status of wasteful habits in their building.  Investigate a sample of trash! Put into 3 categories: recyclable, compostable (food & liquid waste) and true trash (the waste that truly belongs in the trash). Use scientific method, lab safety, draw conclusions, identify any problems, propose solutions and create a plan to move toward solving any identified problems.  During the school year students can make efforts to raise awareness and reduce wasteful habits within their school building! Move your school to the next level!  Be COOL and be a GREEN School!

Win Cash Grant for your school!
