Students from eight schools celebrated the planet and their roles in protecting it at the annual Earth Flag Awards at Rialto Square Theater.

Peotone Junior High placed first in the TREX paper bag challenge, collecting 1,674 pounds. Taking second place was Frankfort Square School in Frankfort. Third place went to Elwood School. Collectively, all participating schools collected 5,120 pounds of plastic. TREX uses the bags in its outdoor furniture. 

Frankfort Square School and Chelsea Intermediate School both earned Earth Flags this year, as well.
