Due February 2nd, 2015 - Students in grades 5–12 are invited to participate in a national recycling awareness contest sponsored by the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) and JASON Learning. The theme of this year’s contest is automobile recycling.

Did you know that cars are the number one recycled product in the United States? Each year, about 10 million vehicles are recycled across the country. As a result, valuable commodities — raw materials — such as steel, iron, precious metals, and rubber are available to be used in new cars and many other products.

Your challenge is to research one or more of the commodities that go into making a car and find out what happens to each commodity through the automobile recycling process and beyond. Create an original video or poster in the style of an infomercial or awareness campaign to illustrate the process and challenges that go along with recycling your chosen commodity or commodities into a reusable form, and you could win a prize!

Video entries must be no more than 2 minutes in length.

Four entries (one video and one poster from each of the two grade bands: 5–8, and 9–12) will be selected as finalists. All finalists will receive a certificate, a full year of JASON online access for the entrant(s) and teacher/facilitator, and a contest t-shirt.

Two grand-prize winning entrants representing the overall best poster and video from both grade brackets will receive a trip for the entrant and a parent/guardian chaperone to ISRI’s Annual Convention & Exposition to be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, April 21–25, 2015. Trip includes airfare, hotel accommodations, and an ISRI Convention pass for one day, including lunch.

Honorable Mention Prizes
JASON and ISRI may also acknowledge up to two additional "honorable mentions" in each media in each grade band; the honorable mention entrants will receive certificates and t-shirts.
