County Commissioners Honor Students for Kitsap Recycles Day Posters

(Port Orchard, WA) - The Kitsap County Board of Commissioners is honoring seven local students during their regular meeting February 9. The students are the winners of the third annual Kitsap Recycles Day poster contest in celebration of Kitsap Recycles Day, February 15. Kitsap Recycles Day is a day set aside to remind residents of the importance of buying and using recycled products in order to close the recycling loop.

Closing the loop is a process in which post-consumer waste is collected, recycled, and used to make new products. For example, recycled paper can be made into cereal boxes or egg cartons, and plastic bottles can be made into new bottles or polyester fleece for clothing.

The winning posters will be published each Friday for three consecutive Fridays beginning February 13th in the A&E section of the Kitsap Sun. Winning poster entries are also posted on the County website here.

Christopher Piercy, the County Recycling Coordinator, commented “Another year of Kitsap Recycles Day brings yet another batch of outstanding poster contest winners. These young artists showed exceptional creativity in their work and exhibited a true passion for waste reduction, recycling, and closing the loop.”

This year’s winners are:

Li-Neishin Co Esquire Hills Elementary 6th grade
Mylee Miller Olalla Elementary 3rd grade
Catelyn Cecil Emerald Heights Elementary 2nd grade
Samantha Shaw Mullenix Ridge Elementary 5th grade
Lillian McDonald Sakai Intermediate School 5th grade
Morgan Mullins South Colby Elementary 4th grade
Libby McDonald South Colby Elementary 3rd grade
