Acadia Elementary - 2009

Contact: Laura Scott

Team Name: Enviro Club

Campaign Goal:

To decrease the amount of litter on our field/playground




What did we do?

  • Students watched the garbage’s for 15 minutes a day either at recess or lunch(we rotated through the school yard to various locations).
  • Anyone 'caught' using the garbage had their name put in a draw.
  • Each week one name was drawn and they received a prize.


The Best Part

Seeing all the names on the list for each week's draw.


Advice

Try to have more students involved so that students don't know who is watching the garbages.
