Reaping Nature Educational Outreach Foundation has launched its America Recycles Day contest for kids and winners could take home prizes from Roswell's Harry's Farmers Market.
This fall’s contest theme is Healthy Choices = Healthy You & Planet.
“We want kids to think about the healthy choices that impact our everyday lives,” said Denise Carleton, executive director of Reaping Nature, a Forsyth County non-profit organization. “By making healthy food choices, recycling, not littering or exercising, for example, individuals show how they are taking care of themselves and the planet.”
Entries need to include Reaping Nature’s original characters, Petunia Garner or Echo the Squirrel, or a combination of both characters, in a written, drawn or photographed format. Winners will be selected based on originality and content in first, second and third place in two different age categories: eight and under and nine to 12. Prize packages with prizes donated by Premier Surplus, Stars & Strikes, , Melissa and Doug and Gorilla Sacks, will be awarded to first, second and third place winners.
All contest entries must be received by Friday, Nov. 4, 2011. Contest entries must be accompanied by an Official Entry Form. Winners not need to be present to win.
Winners will be announced at at Harry’s Farmers Market on Sunday, Nov. 13.
