Oro Loma 2018 Schools Outreach Project!

The District received 2,300 entries from 29 schools serviced by Oro Loma!

Students received certificates and gift cards at the Oro Loma Open House on May 5, 2018, where the Sanitary Board recognized them for their efforts. View and download photos of the students who received certificates and gift cards on May 5, 2018 here.


 

2018 SCHOOLS OUTREACH PROJECT

Want to be chosen to receive a $100 gift card? It’s easy. In your own words, finish the phrase, “I think recycling is important because…” That’s it!

Just complete the paragraph on the back of the entry form, keep on topic, and be as neat as you can. You must attend a school in Oro Loma and you may only enter once. Remember, your submission MUST be in your own words. Submissions will be accepted from February 20 until March 23, 2018. Ten students in each K-12 grade in the District will be chosen at random from responsive entries.

Students whose submissions are chosen will receive $100 gift cards and commemorative certificates at the May 5, 2018 Oro Loma Open House. Students must attend the open house to receive their gift cards.
