The Oro Loma Sanitary District recently gave out cash prizes to local students who entered their poster contest to promote recycling.

Over 2,000 students in San Leandro and San Lorenzo entered the Oro Loma Sanitary District’s 2012 Earth Day poster contest, and the winners were announced recently.

Oro Loma gave out $24,000 in prizes for students and matching funds for their schools.

This year’s theme was “Ride the Recycle Cycle” and many of the young artists incorporated a bicycle into their posters.

First-place winners won $700, second-place winners took home $500, and third-place winners got $300 from Oro Loma, and there were also special kindergarten “recycle star” winners.

In the first- and second-grade division, Hailey Lau won first place, Krystal Kwan won second place, and Levina La won third — they are all from Chinese Christian School.
