October 2014 - Collect-a-Can National Schools Competition Countdown

23 October 2014

There is only one week left for eco-conscience schools to win with their used beverage can collections through the annual National Schools Competition closing on Friday, 31 October 2014.

Over 160 schools across the country have already registered for this year’s Collect-a-Can National Schools Competition, which gives schools the platform to raise additional funds and the opportunity to win their share of R788 800.00 in monthly and annual prizes.

Schools that register for the Collect-a-Can National Schools Competition are encouraged to get their learners involved by collecting as many cans as possible to win great prizes. Prizes are awarded to the schools that collect the most cans per month as well as the most cans per year.

Zimasa Velaphi, public relations and marketing manager for Collect-a-Can says, “It is truly inspiring to see how excited the learners are about looking after their environment by showing such enthusiasm for the competition. I think a lesson can be learnt here whereby we can all be inspired by our children with the simple pleasures in life, such as taking care of our beautiful country.”

Winners of this year’s competition will be awarded for their green efforts at the regional award ceremonies on 21 November 2014 in Cape Town, 25 November 2014 in Durban and 27 November 2014 in Johannesburg.

“We are excited to see what this year’s competition delivers,” says Velaphi. “We are also already planning for the 2015 competition and look forward to breathe new life into the competition as part of celebrating its twenty-first year.”
