And The 2008-09 Winning Classroom Is...

Out of more than 83,000 classrooms nationwide, four were recognized for their outstanding integration of the 2008-09 Elmer’s Glue Crew Recycling Program into their year-long classroom activities. Congratulations to Shannon Dominick and her second grade class at Eisenhower Elementary in Pittsburgh, Pa., who were selected as the program’s grand prize winner.


Eisenhower Elementary’s award-winning entry contained a student-produced video which was shared with the entire school to generate excitement around recycling efforts. The production was developed in a fun, news format and included stories about the importance of everyday recycling. Additionally, Dominick’s classroom walked the walk by collecting and recycling more than 1,000 Elmer’s glue bottles and glue sticks.

As part of Eisenhower Elementary’s grand prize, Elmer’s is working with American Forests to plant 1,000 trees in the classroom’s honor as part of the Global ReLeaf ecosystem restoration project which often reforests wildfire decimated areas. Elmer’s also hosted a celebration at the school that featured an all-school assembly, ceremonial tree planting and student reception.
