2014 School Reusable Bag Drawing Contest

The Paramus Environmental Commission will be sponsoring its second annual reusable bag drawing contest. We would like to invite students from the Paramus school district to draw a picture related to environmental protection. The winning pictures will be highlighted on reusable shopping bags that will be given out to the community at Earth Day in April, and The Farmer's Market throughout the summer.

Due to success of last year's contest, we are happy to announce that three winners will be picked this year. One elementary school student, middle school student, and high school student's submission will be selected. All pictures submitted will be posted on the Paramus Environmental Commission's web site, www.paramusec.org, for the community to view.

Our goal is to not only reduce the use of plastic shopping bags, but also bring awareness to the community of what the Paramus Environmental Commission's web site has to offer. Our web site provides current information related to town events, our annual scholarship application, and helpful hints on how to reduce environmental waste.

Kindly share this information with your staff and students. Pictures need to be submitted to Jean Payoczkowski at jpayoczkowski@paramusborough.org in pdf. format no later than March 3, 2014 for consideration.
