The City's Solid Waste Services Division is using the artistic talents of middle school students in the North Kansas City School District to promote the importance of recycling and proper trash disposal.

Under the tutelage of teacher Lara Bradley Owsley, videos and artwork created by eight students in the district’s Students in Academically Gifted Education (SAGE) Program were chosen to promote these efforts through social media and public outreach campaigns. More than 100 SAGE students participated.

“It’s a topic the students felt very passionate about and they created some outstanding work,” Owsley said. “Even during the quarantine and remote learning, the students want to help spread the word about how Kansas City citizens can help their community and improve their recycling efforts.”
