SOUTH PORTLAND — CLYNK, a Maine-based recycling company, recently announced the first-ever “Maine Recycles Championship,” a statewide competition to raise money for schools and encourage recycling.
Schools that sign up for the championship will compete to collect the most bottles and cans (per enrolled student) between Feb. 26 and April 29. Prizes will be awarded to schools in two tiers: 400 students or more and fewer than 400 students. One winning school in each tier will receive a grand prize of $2,000; second place will get $1,000; and third place will receive $500. Each school will also receive every nickel it earns during the competition.
Students and supporters can track their school’s progress and see the environmental impact of their recycling at clynk.com.
Schools must sign up before Feb. 26. Teachers or administrators who want to participate should call CLYNK at 866-228-8454.
