KBCB announces winners of recent recycling contest

On Thursday, April 7,  46 Bastrop ISD Students will receive prizes and certificates from Keep Bastrop County Beautiful and HEB for their artwork using recycled materials or creating videos to promote recycling. In mid-January, all students in BISD and their teachers were given the opportunity to participate in the Recycle More Art Contest to promote recycling in a fun way for students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. By the end of February, more than 200 students and their teachers in seven schools completed art projects.

The contest was made possible by a grant from HEB, funded by customers who purchase the green reusable bag at their stores. Keep Bastrop County Beautiful  received the $3,000 grant to further educate students about recycling and promote their mission of inspiring individuals and businesses to improve their communities and the natural environment.

In March, judges Andrea Haschke, KBCB board member, Jo Watts, Lost Pines Artisans Alliance, Cary Mabry and Rebecca Evans, HEB managers and Wes Dickinson, HEB district representative, selected the winners. On Thursday, the winners will receive their prizes at the Aqua Water Meeting Room at 415 Old Austin Highway in Bastrop at 7 p.m. In addition, a program on “How to Construct a Rain Barrel” will be demonstrated by Jeanne Pauley, KBCB board member, with assistance from BISD students. Everyone is encouraged to attend. For more information, e-mail bastropcountyrecycling@gmail.com or call (512) 581 8258.
