Options Available to Celebrate Earth Day at Kent State TrumbullPosted March 14, 2011
The Kent State University at Trumbull Office of Student Activities has announced a trio of events in observance of Earth Day 2011, which occurs April 22.
In preparation for Earth Day, the campus community is invited to learn more about environmental issues now. Every Monday and Thursday through the week of April 11, stop by the "Go Green" table (look for the green balloons) located in the Lower Commons of the Classroom/Administration Building to learn how you can save money, "Go Green" and enter a drawing to win prizes.
Among the student-focused activities is a poster contest, featuring cash prizes for the top three entries and gifts for all participants. Posters shouldeffectively illustrate processes, information, benefits, etc. of reducing, reusing, and recycling. The poster can also create awareness and educate viewers on recycling, reusing items and how to save money through green practices. Entries may also discuss the carbon footprint and offer steps individuals can take to reduce theirs. Deadline for submissions is April 15. Contest rules and regulations are available by clicking here.
