Lex Brodie's Earn and Learn School Competition -- 2012-2013
Lex Brodie's Tire Company Foundation sponsors the annual school competition, challenging all Hawaii schools to learn and earn through HI-5 recycling drives. Prizes include $1000 (first place) and $500 (second place) matching donations to the Hawaii schools that collect the most HI-5's during one or more events during the contest period (August 1, 2012 to March 15, 2013). Schools may also count HI-5 redemption receipts (submitted by family, faculty, and staff) toward their total amount raised. See the complete contest rules for more information and download the official entry form to begin your school's tally.
During the 2011-2012 school year, Hawaii Baptist Academy took top honors, collecting more than 35,000 HI-5 beverage containers, earning $1,869... in a single collection event! Punahou School, a past winner, took second collecting just under 25,000 HI-5 containers and earning $1,289. Lex Brodie's Tire Company Foundation presented a check for $1,000 to HBA and $500 to Punahou School. Look for the action in an upcoming "Tiny TV" episode on OC16.
All of the participating schools are winners in that they raise funds for their schools and organizations through recycling revenues and learn the importance of protecting our environment by reducing waste. Lex Brodie's incentivizes the effort with matching fund awards, which has helped to get more and more schools engaged each year. For the 2011-2012 school year, the competing schools recycled more than 700,000 HI-5 beverage containers, earning more than $34,000 for their schools.

Donate Your Recyclables
Look for special event HI-5 Community Collection Bins at your

recycling fundraisers at school.
