Participate in the "Reuse a Shoe" Contest! 

 

For this year's Earth Month, the Environmental Committee has partnered with the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County (SWALCO) to initiate a "Reuse a Shoe Contest" that will be running the week of April 21st.    

 

Wauconda schools will compete against each other to see which school can bring in the most shoes per student.  The winning school will be awarded a trophy to be displayed throughout the year.  We are excited to see just how many pairs of shoes we can gather!
