Drum roll, please. The results for the Recycle-Bowl 2017 are in!
The Trice Horticulture Environment Awareness Team (HEAT) led their campus to victory by winning in the School Division category for the state of Arkansas. Over 1,000 schools participated this year, representing 550,000 students and teachers who recycled 2 million pounds of paper and other materials.
HEAT is made up of third and fourth grade students who come together with a common goal of making the environment a better place. In addition to recycling materials, the team maintains the school garden and large flowerbeds.
