Posted Mar. 2, 2011

Earth Day 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.

Among the activities is a poster contest, featuring cash prizes for the top three entries and gifts for all participants. Posters should effectively illustrate processes, information, benefits, etc of reducing, reusing, and recycling or 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 steps individuals can take to reduce theirs. Deadline for submissions is April 15. Contest rules and regulations are available by clicking here.

An event/service/project contest is also planned, again with cash prizes for the top three entries and gifts for all participants. Participants are asked to implement a project, service or event linked to reducing, reusing or recycling and saving money through green practices. Participants must present their idea, service, project or event on April 21 between 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the Lower Commons of the Classroom/Administration Building. In order to enter the contest, you must submit a one-paragraph proposal outlining the project/service/event you will be implementing - as well as all participants - by April 7 at 5 p.m. All proposals should be sent to Jacob Roope at jroope@kent.edu. Deadline for submissions is April 15. Contest rules and regulations are available by clicking here. A presentation template is available by clicking here.

Finally, an educational component will be featured on the Kent State Trumbull campus each Monday and Thursday beginning the week of March 1 and running through the week of April 11. Stop by the "Go Green" table (look for the green balloons) which will be located in the Lower Commons on the Classroom/Administration Building to learn how you can save money and "Go Green" as well as enter a drawing to win prizes by committing yourself to going green.

All contest participants must be Kent State Trumbull students. Participants may enter all Earth Day Campaign contests.
