Waste management awards prizes, scholarships in recycling contest


Dallas ISD students were recently recognized for their work in promoting recycling on their campuses in an annual contest sponsored by Waste Management.

Three students each received a $1,000 scholarship after submitting essays centering on why recycling is important and what they are doing at their schools. The 2018 winners are Brenda Castaneda, Irma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School; Henry Lloyd, Woodrow Wilson High School; and Alexis Ojeda, School of Health Professions.

Additionally, prizes were awarded to Green Team logo design contest winners at J.J. Rhoads Learning Center, Arturo Salazar Elementary School, Solar Preparatory for Girls, Rosemont Middle School, H. Grady Spruce High School and Wilmer-Hutchins High School. Each school received $250 for their activity funds, and student winners received individual prizes ranging from $50-$250, depending on grade level.

The logos were designed to promote recycling, explain what each school’s Green Team is about and also push the Dallas ISD Energy and Sustainability Department’s recycling information page here.
