The Carton 2 Garden student competitions started in 2015. Participants have come from 46 different states. Since its launch, nearly 1,000 project entries have been judged and more than 76,000 students have participat- ed. The result is that nearly 392,000 cartons have been repurposed. “This year, like each of the five prior years, the students across the country demonstrated remarkable levels of cre- ativity and thinking for their projects,” said Katie Simmons, Marketing Director for Evergreen Packaging. “Whether they are kindergarten students working on perhaps their first group projects as students or high school students with years of project experience, they each embrace the ideas of eco-friendly packaging and practices, and the impact on their environment. These children and young adults are role models for environmental stewardship in their communities, neighborhoods and schools.” The grand prize and specialty prize winners of the con- test are as follows: • Grand Prize Winner – Thomaston Grammar School in Thomaston, Maine
