Students in Dakota County are invited to take part in the annual America Recycles Day Poster and Video Contest. This year’s theme of “Follow Your Recycling” provides a look at where our bottles, cans and paper go after they get picked up by recycling haulers. 

Fourth-grade students are invited to enter artwork for the poster contest and students in grades 5–12 can submit a video. Submissions must be emailed to schoolrecycling@co.dakota.mn.us no later than Friday, Dec. 2.

Winning posters will be professionally printed and displayed at Dakota County Galaxie Library in Apple Valley. Winners of the video contest receive a $100 Visa gift card. 

First place and most original posters and videos will be published on the Dakota County webpage and social media. Contest rules and more information are available at www.dakotacounty.us, search school contest.  

America Recycles Day by Keep America Beautiful is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. Held on Nov. 15, America Recycles Day educates and encourages individuals on how to be more mindful of what they consume, where and how to properly recycle, and to pledge to recycle more and recycle right in their everyday lives.
