Go Green Save Green
The Go Green & Save Green contest promotes recycling and saving money at the same time. Elementary schools throughout the Commonwealth are invited to return bottles and cans for the deposit and then deposit that money in a school wide savings account. Each school will choose a local charity or student fund to donate their savings to. In three months’ time the school that saves the most will receive a banner of their achievement at the National Financial Capability Challenge Ceremony.
Elementary schools are also invited to take part in an essay contest. There are two essay questions, one regarding saving money and the other recycling. Each school that participates in the essay portion will have one winner. The top ten essay winners will also be invited to the National Financial Capability Challenge Ceremony.
