County Executive Leopold Praises Winners of Rev-Up Recycling Video Contest
"Recycle for the Future" takes 1st Place
Annapolis (April 20, 2009) - County Executive John R. Leopold today announced the winners of the Rev-Up Recycling Video Contest, with students from Glen Burnie High School taking home 1st Place with their video "Recycle for the Future."
"We received eight very creative submissions from six different high schools," County Executive Leopold said. "Our students are the best partners in spreading the word to Recycle More Often. The winning video will be broadcast on local television, and I hope it will convince all of our residents to recycle more in their homes."
County Executive Leopold made a commitment to increase residential recycling, and the percentage of household waste recycled has increased so far under his tenure from 31 percent to 34 percent.
"Recycle for the Future" features an animated man tossing a crumpled piece of paper into a yellow recycling bin. The paper ball unfurls and grows into a tree. All of the submissions have been uploaded to www.recyclemoreoften.com and YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/user/annearundeldpw.
Second place went to Old Mill High School for its submission, "Mission To Recycle," and third place went to "Love for Recycling," produced by students at Arundel High School. The other submissions received honorable mentions.
