(Indianapolis, Ind.) – The Indiana Recycling Coalition is hosting a recycling video contest in light of America Recycles Day for Indiana high school students grade 9th through 12th.

The 9th through 12th grade students are invited to produce a 30-second video that helps educate Hoosiers on the environmental impacts of recycling.

Participating schools will have the opportunity to receive cash prizes for their work. The winner will receive $600, the second place will receive $400, and the third place will receive $200.

The theme this year is “I want to be recycled”. In addition, the campaign this year is “Keep American Beautiful”. The theme wants to focus on the value of recycled goods and what recycled material can become rather than being thrown away.

Indiana Recycling Coalition is a non profit formed in 1989 to support waste reduction, reuse, composting, and recycling activities in Indiana.
