2014 Green Genius Cafeteria Challenge

We are very excited to announce that we have won 2nd place for the City of Bellevue- Bellevue School District Green Genius Cafeteria Challenge!  This year the City and District issued a challenge to schools to launch education campaigns to help reduce waste at lunch.  The contest culmination was a measurement day on November 14th- America Recycles Day -in which green teams measured the volume of garbage generated from one day at lunch.  The three schools with the lowest amount of garbage won.   Our green team worked very hard to help promote waste reduction, recycling and composting.  As a result each student averaged less than a half cup of garbage on our measurement day at lunch!  Great work students, staff and parents for helping us win!  On December 8th, our school will win the “Mighty Moose” trophy made from recycled materials with our name engraved on it for us to keep. 

 We are also pleased to win since this competition was extremely competitive.  Thirteen Bellevue elementary schools competed- and each worked very hard.  Thirteen schools that participated represented over 7000 students and staff.  All the schools combined, on November 14th, generated a total of 15 garbage cans of trash.  The biggest winner of this contest truly is the environment!  Go green!
