2014 Green Genius Cafeteria Challenge

The Green Genius Cafeteria Challenge is a district-wide contest where schools commit to cutting cafeteria waste through waste reduction, composting and recycling.  The winning school will have the least amount of garbage on November 14 (America Recycles Day) in the cafeteria and the most innovative zero waste campaign.

Great job everyone! The winner will be announced December 1, 2014.
