Event description: 
The challenge is open to all schools and happens during Waste Reduction Week, the third full week in October. Our goal is to raise awareness of the environmental and economic problems associated with waste. By reducing waste, we conserve precious resources, minimize pollution and save money. The challenge is to encourage everyone to reduce, reuse, recycle, compost, and conserve water and energy. The R.E.A.P.S School District 'Waste Reduction Challenge' is meant to encourage and show students and teachers how they can reduce their environmental footprint and help make learning about classroom garbage fun! The class with the least amount of classroom garbage during Waste Reduction Week will receive $200.00!
