We’re very pleased to sponsor our first School Participation Contest in conjunction with this event. This contest is open to all K-12 schools in Arlington (public and private). Any school that takes part will get a certificate of participation and a group photo. The schools with the top three levels of participation will each get a $50 gift certificate for pizza.

Fine print – we will determine the top three schools by calculating percentage of participants at the event compared to total school enrollment. We will provide participation certificates at the cleanup to all school group’s registered by January 13. For those registering after the 13th, we are happy to send certificates by email upon request.
