We decorated 6500 bags!

About our project: We have been doing an art bag contest for the past two years with our county. Barbara, Lacy and Kate are three 4-H'ers that have started this project to get the elementary students involved in Earth Day. A local grocery store donates 6500 bags which the girls distribute to 16 elementary schools. About 6000 students will create art work with an Earth Day them which is judged by these girls. The winning art work is displayed at a local mall along with an awards ceremony at the mall. The rest of the bags are returned to the local grocery store to be used on Earth Day. We have reached an average of 25,000 people in the community to make them aware of Earth Day. Along with this project the girls also will be coordinating an envirofair for the elementary school students in this county as well as two other counties. We will be promoting Earth Day on a much larger scale in the year 2003. In the meantime, the girls have helped coordinate an Earth Day event for the elementary school in their area which includes 14 presenters from around the state. There are three schools that attend this day long celebration of Earth Day and this event reaches about 450 students. As you can see these 3 girls have been very active in promoting Earth Day. We, their parents, are very proud of them. We know that with kids like these our future will be in good hands.

Western Hills Elementary
Temple, TXUSA

We decorated 200 bags!

About our project: Our classes decorated 200 bags! Mrs. Brown's fourth grade class and Mrs. Manning's fifth grade class learned about the origins of Earth Day, recycling, and conservation. After completing their own bags, students, in teams of three, made presentations to our kindergarten classes. The students shared facts about the environment and explained how we could help by recycling, reducing and reusing. They then guided the younger children through the process of planning and creating Earth Day bags. Our local HEB on Adams Avenue was delighted to distribute the colorful bags to customers on April 22.
