The Washington Elementary School Green Team won $250 from the PepsiCo Recycle Rally Team for their original skit about how they were aiming to "go green" during the holiday season.
The Green Team performed the skit--written by Fourth Grader Sydney Glover--before Winter Break, to encourage everyone to think about not using plastic, disposable products. The Green Team is a group of Washington Fourth Graders who are overseeing a school-wide initiative to recycle #1 and #2 plastics, and they are doing a great job!
Washington was one of six schools across the country to win this award.
The students plan to use their winnings to purchase recycling containers to continue their mission.
Thanks to everyone at Washington who is helping to keep our planet healthy!
