RethinkWaste Announces 2020 Poster Contest Winners

RethinkWaste is very excited to announce the winners of its seventh annual poster contest, which was open to all 3rd through 5th graders attending schools in the RethinkWaste service area.  This year’s poster theme was “Rethinking Waste on the Move.”  The artwork from local student artists illustrated the creative ways students are practicing the 4R’s (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot) while spending time in outdoor spaces.

The winners and their respective cities and schools are listed below:

First Place
Ella K., 5th Grade, Hoover Elementary School, Burlingame for “Taking the 4R’s Everywhere I Go!”

Second Place
Nikita G., 3rd Grade, Brewer Island Elementary, Foster City for “My Family Picnic!

Third Place
Lucie B., 4th Grade, Nesbit Elementary, Belmont for “We Can Help the World”

Honorable Mention
Ellie K., 4th Grade, The Carey School, San Mateo for “Costumes Reused”

The First Place poster will be featured on the side of a Recology collection truck with routes in Burlingame, so the winner will see their artwork around their neighborhood this spring!  In addition, contest winners will be recognized at upcoming City Council meetings.
