Bat Kid Poster Contest

 

3rd Annual Eco Challenge Poster Contest

Step Up To Bat For Our Planet!

Enter the County of Orange poster contest for the chance to be an Honorary Bat Kid at an Angels baseball game this year! Just create a poster that clearly demonstrates how you personally 'Take the Eco Challenge'. Show examples of projects or activities that you have developed or engaged in that promote recycling, reusing, or reducing. These programs could be in your school, home or community, but the poster needs to focus on your personal plan of action. Bring or mail your entry to Discovery Cube or OC Waste & Recycling Headquarters by June 30, 2015, and one lucky winner from each of Orange County's Supervisorial Districts will be awarded the status of Honorary Bat Kid during an Angels home game in 2015.
