Here’s an easy way to honor students’ participation in your school recycling program. Print the Recycle Rally Participation Certificate and award students at an assembly. There’s even a coloring-page version to make things even more fun!


Looking for more ways to award your star recyclers? Here’s what other schools are doing:


“The recycling captain selects the best recycler at lunch each day and there is a drawing for a free popsicle each week. We have recycling poster contests with winners. We feature the best recycling class on the morning show saying the pledge. Plus, we had a recycling company come and collect our electronics. Then we awarded the class with the greatest collection a pizza party.”

-Lawton Chiles


“Develop a ‘Recycle Rally Cash’ reward system. For every Recycle Rally punch card that a student completes, they receive $100 worth of Recycle Rally cash. Students can then trade in their cash for prizes!“

-Cass Junior High School


“Try a ‘Fill a Bag by Friday’ contest! Each homeroom teacher gives her students a grocery bag and encourages students to bring back the bag full of recyclables on Friday.”

-Valley Ranch Elementary School


“For February, our students use their recycling bags to vote for which principal gets to kiss a pig. The one with the most weight gets to give the big smooch!”

-Crain Elementary School
