Ft. Worth, Texas (PressExposure) May 01, 2011 -- With this being their third visit to Fort Worth's Eagle Mountain Elementary School in as many years, Vocal Trash's appearance at this school could be called an annual appearance now to spread the good work about recycling in their own unique manner on Friday, May 6, 2011.
Vocal Trash has a history of performing for schools. According to Steve Linder, the group's creator, "these are great platforms to reach out to young minds and help create that all important awareness." Kelsey Rae, co-owner and lead talent adds, "Performing at the Eagle Mountain Elementary School is always a pleasure."
Celebrating Earth Day a little late due to TAKS testing, Eagle Mountain Elementary is running their 'EME is Going Green' the first week in May, and aims to make the younger generation more aware of recycling, reducing, and reusing, in their everyday lives.
Getting students to take a hands-on approach, they are being encouraged to participate in a recycling contest (collecting chip bags, juice boxes and candy wrappers). The contest is open to the entire school and participation is at grade level. The winners of this competition will get to meet members of Vocal Trash in person and a photo with the class, and will also be treated to a special song.
Apart from the competition, and in conjunction with Vocal Trash, the school has also started a drive in order to collect paper products and items like old laser & inkjet cartridges, old cell phones, PDAs, and laptops, and the proceeds from these products being recycled or reused will go to charity and back to the school. A positive aspect about this drive is that it is spreading beyond the confines of the school, with parents, grandparents, neighbors and siblings from other schools, all being a part of it.
It's not just the students who are looking forward to the Vocal Trash stage show, teachers and other staff members are also waiting with bated breath. Pamela English, the school's 4th grade science teacher, when asked about this performance by Vocal Trash, said, "I cannot think of a better program to promote recycling and helping the environment. The added benefit is the kids and teachers love it. I get asked on an almost weekly basis each year when is Vocal Trash coming back. It is definitely one of the highlights of our school year!"
Members of Vocal Trash, continue with ongoing efforts to make more people aware of the need and benefits of recycling, and all the members of this national touring group, Steve says, "are looking forward to this performance as much as the school is."
Vocal Trash is available for interviews. Come and cover the excitement of the class who wins the contest!
