15 Centre County 5th Grade Students To Be Honored Nov. 15 On America Recycles Day

The Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority, Weis Markets and the Centre Daily Times are proud to announce the fifteen winners of our “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Read” poster contest.  
On September 8, International Literacy Day, the Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority, along with partners Weis Markets and the Centre Daily Times, kicked off a poster contest that was open to all 5th grade students in Centre County.  
The students were asked to design a poster around the theme “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Read.”  We received hundreds of entries, and on October 13, fifteen posters and artists were selected as our winners.
Congratulations to the following students for their winning posters: Ally Duncan, Gray’s Woods Elementary School; Blake Wheeler, Wingate Elementary School; Cedric Bagwell, Benner Elementary School; Emily Lovrak, Pleasant Gap Elementary School; Emma Haagen, Marion Walker Elementary School; Erika Lucas, Philipsburg-Osceola Middle School; Hannah Rose Craig, Our Lady of Victory; Isabel Olson, Gray’s Woods Elementary School; Jade Brown, Pleasant Gap Elementary School; Lillian Hodges,  Centre Learning Community Charter School; Madison Stimer, Port Matilda Elementary School; Marinn Peters, Penns Valley Intermediate School; Poppy Rusca, Park Forest Elementary School; Sena Andrews, Mountain Top Elementary School and Taylor Brown, Marion Walker Elementary School.
The 15 winning posters will be made into a 2018 “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Read” wall calendar that will be distributed to all 5th grade students in Centre County this December.  The calendars will also be available free of charge at our five local Weis Markets stores and will be inserted into an upcoming copy of the Centre Daily Times.  
A press conference honoring the students will be held on November 15, America Recycles Day, at Noon at the Weis Market located on Buckaroo Drive in Bellefonte.  Each student will receive a framed picture of their winning poster at the ceremony.
