Celebrate Earth Day by Designing a Poster

BOTHELL, Wash -- Students enrolled in Cascadia College’s bachelor degree in sustainable practices are hosting a poster contest aimed at promoting sensible recycling practices. Any student enrolled in a K-12 school in the Northshore, Lake Washington, or Riverview school districts, or attending Cascadia or UW Bothell are encouraged to participate.

“We’re challenging students of all ages to think up creative ways to promote recycling in their communities, schools, and homes by creating posters,” says Justin Masi, a junior in Cascadia’s sustainable practices degree program.

To participate please send a PDF or JPEG of your original artwork, along with your name, and school to Details and further directions for participation can be found at Submissions will be accepted now through April 14, and awards will be handed out at Cascadia College during Earth Week ceremonies on April 20, 2017. 

The inspiration for the contest is a national competition known as RecycleMania which is aimed at tracking waste and recycling levels on colleges and universities across the country. Cascadia entered the competition for the first time this year.

“We need to show a little more care for the earth,” said Larry Walton, a Cascadia student pursuing a degree in sustainable practices.  “Allowing all that recycling to end up in the landfill is just tossing away precious resources.”
