America Recycles Day Billboard Design Contest

About the Contest

Target Recycling, a program managed by the Dalton-Whitfield Solid Waste Authority, initiated a billboard design contest for Middle Schoolers in Whitfield County in October 2010.  Students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade are invited to design artwork for a billboard with a recycling theme in celebration of America Recycles Day.  America Recycles Day takes place on November 15 and encourages the public to take a pledge to recycle year round.  The winning design is displayed for four weeks on two billboards in Whitfield County.  For the most current contest guide visit the Target Recycling at School page. 

Middle schools invited to participate include Eastbrook Middle School, New Hope Middle School, North Whitfield Middle School, Valley Point Middle School, Westside Middle School, Dalton Middle School, Christian Heritage School, and the Learning Tree School.
