Last Thursday 2/17 SUNY New Paltz’s Recycling Club and Environmental Task Force hosted the first ever RecycleMania 2011 and Energy Saving Kickoff Event: Game Show Night, to mark the beginning of both programs.
Over 24 campus organizations ranging from Male Call, an all male A Capella group, to Greek Fraternities and Sororities and many residence hall governments were contestants in environmentally themed TV game shows like Wheel of Fortune, Legends of the Hidden Temple, and Jeopardy. In an effort to build the spirit of recycling throughout campus the event was targeted at student organizations.The groups answered sustainability related questions competing for a grand prize of $500 for custom t-shirts for the winning organization. The Gunx, the university’s Ultimate Frisbee Team won the grand prize after an exciting evening of friendly competition and environmental education.
The event was Sponsored by Recycling Club, Environmental Task Force, The Climate Action Committee and The Student Association. Students were able to work with New Paltz residents at the Climate Action Committee to make the event an even bigger success.
