Hyde Park North
Wilson Middle School students started recycling plastic foam lunch trays last week. Wilson students use about 300 trays a day.
They now stack the trays after eating, and parent volunteers pick them up and take them to a nearby Publix. Then they're off to a recycling station in Lakeland. Check with your local grocery store manager to start a recycling program at your school.
Kids can participate in Google doodles
Google invites kindergarteners through 12th-graders to design a logo inspired by the question, "What If ... ?"
The "Doodle 4 Google" competition will feature the winning student's doodle on the Google home page on May 22, and that student will win a $10,000 college scholarship and a $25,000 technology grant for his or her school.
Teachers can register their class online by March 28 at www.google.com/doodle4google.
Blake High students design Verizon ad
Students in Blake High School's performing arts program created a winning advertising campaign for Verizon FiOS.
Students Bernard Jackson, Asia Elliott and Ashley Morrow shot and edited a video depicting life before FiOS (in black and white) and life after FiOS (full color with soothing jazz music).
They won $1,500 for their school. The money will be used to enhance marketing for the performing arts program.
