Promoting good nutrition and awareness of sustainable packaging benefits among school children are the goals of the Made by Milk Carton Construction Contest, a unique nationwide student design competition launched August 1, 2012. Schools across the U.S. can win up to $5,000 by having classroom teams design and construct creations made from empty school milk cartons. The contest, sponsored by Evergreen Packaging, promotes carton recycling and milk consumption among school-aged children. Prizes are awarded each semester for creations based on a specific theme. The theme for the fall 2012 contest is habitats.

Evergreen Packaging is one of the top manufacturers of gable-top cartons in North America and provides a significant number of school milk cartons in the United States. The Made by Milk program is part of ongoing efforts by Evergreen Packaging to raise awareness among consumers regarding the eco-friendly benefits of cartons.

Cartons are an eco-friendly packaging choice because more than 70 percent of milk carton packaging is paper, made from trees, a renewable resource. Currently, more than 44 million households in the United States have access to recycling programs that accept paper milk cartons.

The Made by Milk program is designed to encourage school-wide participation, as classroom teams collect the 100 minimum milk cartons required to be used in the habitat construction — generating excitement about recycling and choosing milk. Students also must write a 200-word essay on how their school will utilize the prize money. 

Winning categories include:
• Grand Prize – $5,000
• People's Choice Award – $2,500
• Elementary Winners (3 total) – $1,500
• Middle School Winners (3 total) – $1,500
• High School Winners (3 total) – $1,500 

Entries will be accepted until November 16, 2012. Visit www.madebymilkcontest.com for official rules, contest details and creative ideas.
