Wreath-Cycled K-12 Classroom Challenge
Reduce, Reuse and Wreath-cycle!
Chicago-area schools helped deck the halls at Shedd Aquarium by making wreaths using 100 percent recycled and recyclable materials. All wreaths celebrated the same theme: At Home on the Great Lakes.
Final entries for the Wreath-Cycled Classroom Challenge are in!
Starting Nov. 27, you can vote for your favorite wreath on Shedd's Facebook page. Simply "like" your favorite wreath to cast your vote. The wreath photo with the most "likes" by Dec. 8 will win the Fan Favorite category—and a free field trip to Shedd!
