RethinkWaste Announces 2021 Poster Contest Winners

RethinkWaste is very excited to announce the winners of its eighth 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 “Compost Champions!” The artwork from local student artists illustrated the creative ways students practice composting with their friends, family, and classmates!

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

First Place “I’m a Compost Champion”
Kira H., 3rd, Audubon Elementary, Foster City

Second Place – “Compost Evolution”
Taiki I., 5th grade, Foster City Elementary, Foster City

Third Place – “What Goes in the Green Bin”
Lyra B., 4th grade, Sandpiper School, Redwood City

Honorable Mention – “A Comic about Compost”
Ryder H., 5th grade, Audubon Elementary, Foster City

The First Place poster will be featured on the side of a Recology collection truck with routes in Foster City, so the winner will see their artwork around their neighborhood this spring! All winning posters will be showcased on the RethinkWaste website and social media and may appear in RethinkWaste newsletters and other educational materials.
In addition, contest winners may be recognized at upcoming City Council meetings.

As a reward for their submissions all winners received fun eco-friendly prizes!
