Forest team up with SCRIB to tell schools, Yes You Can
Nottingham Forest is teaming up with SCRIB to help find Nottingham’s Yes You Can champion.
Yes You Can is a local recycling challenge organised by SCRIB, the steel can recycling information bureau, an education initiative which promotes sustainability in schools.
Endorsed by Nottingham Forest, Yes You Can is offering an exciting sustainability workshop and two tickets to a Nottingham Forest match, to whichever three winners from Nottinghamshire Schools can prove their green credential by designing a colourful recycling poster!
To enter, pupils simply have to design a poster on an A4 piece of paper which promotes recycling. The poster must feature plastic bags and steel cans somewhere within the design. Then, you simply write the name of the pupil, class and school on the back of the poster and send it to Yes You Can Forest competition, c/o Biss Lancaster, 4 Jordan Street, Manchester, M15 4PY or email them to email@example.com by 6th March 2009.
Three winning pupils’ designs will be chosen by SCRIB and Nottingham Forest and visited by SCRIB’s Nicola Bennett, to learn how to keep their school and home as green as possible. They will also receive two tickets to the City Ground to watch Nottingham Forest in action!
With recycling suffering its first major dip as an industry because of the recession, it is vitally important that the education of recycling remains strong and SCRIB education officer, Nicola Bennett, is looking forward to seeing the entries.
Nicola commented: “I am delighted to team up Nottingham Forest, who already work hard in the community to promote recycling with their club policies. By asking children to creatively think about recycling, we can ensure sustainability is at the front of their minds and I’m sure the schools in Nottingham will produce some fantastic entries.”
Nottingham Forest’s Ben White said: “Nottingham Forest is more than happy to support the SCRIB project. It is important for local schools and children to be aware of the importance of recycling, and how it can help our environment.’
