Recycle Right Media Contest
In an abundance of caution related to COVID-19, the Town of Brookhaven has made the difficult decision to temporarily postpone our Recycle Right Media Contest. The health, safety, and well-being of our community members is our top priority. This is an evolving situation that we will continue to monitor. We will be rescheduling the program sometime soon.
The Town of Brookhaven’s Recycling Advisory Committee (BRAC) has announced its first "Recycle Right" Media Contest!
Entries must focus on and promote concepts of "Recycle Right." These tenets include but are not limited to:
- Knowing and following through on what CAN be recycled
- Knowing and following through on what CANNOT be recycled
- Reducing personal waste stream by making the right choices as consumers and/or by reusing items
- Practicing smart recycling by adhering to ‘when in doubt, throw it out,’ rather than wishful recycling
- 20-second Public Service Announcement (PSA) in video (mp4) or audio (mp3)
- Students may work on their own, or in groups of up to 4
- Each student or group must have a Faculty Adviser
- Each entry should be submitted under a “Team Name”
- The Faculty Adviser must keep a record of the student(s) on the team
- High school students grades 9 through 12

- 1st prize: $750
- 2nd prize: $500
- 3rd Prize: $250
The "Recycle Right" Media Contest will now run until 5:00 pm on April 15, 2020.
