County of Orange Honors Young Artist in Eco Challenge Poster Contest

Cypress Resident Jasmine Noh Wins the Fourth Annual Eco Challenge
Poster Contest for the Second District

Eleven year old Cypress resident Jasmine Noh was recognized in an on-field pre-game ceremony at Angel Stadium on Friday, September 9th. Jasmine is the Eco Challenge Poster Contest Winner representing Supervisor Michelle Steel's Second District. Jasmine is a 6th grader at A.E. Arnold Elementary School. Along with the on-field recognition, Jasmine served as an honorary Bat Kid at an Angels game and received an Angels Bat Kid jersey.

This year's theme was to highlight the eco-friendly benefits of recycling food and green waste. Jasmine's poster reveals the rewards for our environment to dispose of green waste properly. Her poster serves as a reminder to all Orange County residents to take small steps now to create a better environment for future generations.

The Eco Challenge Poster Contest is sponsored by OC Waste & Recycling in partnership with Discovery Cube Orange County and Angels Baseball. 

Why is important to recycle food and green waste in Orange County? Organic waste accounts for more than a third of the material in California's waste stream. Collecting and processing organic materials to meet new mandates will change how we manage waste within our homes and contribute to bigger change.
