To celebrate 30 years of recycling in Mahoning County and the 42nd anniversary of Earth Day, the Green Team is hosting a "Green Idol" singing contest on April 14 at Boardman Park, which gives first through 12th grade students a chance to show off their musical talents and their ability to send an earth-friendly message to the audience. Each contestant will sing a song with an environmental theme, either created by them or made famous by someone else. The contestants will be grouped into three categories divided by their ages. There will also be an audience favorite prize which encourages all of the contestants to bring a big following with them to the contest.
To become a contestant, contact the Green Team at 330-740-2060, e-mail Peg Flynn at firstname.lastname@example.org., or check their website at www.greenteam.cc.
