LA's BEST Students Celebrate Water
Date:12/18/2009

COMPTON, Calif., Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Today more than 12,000 students enrolled in the LA's BEST After School Enrichment Program celebrated the successful completion of the "Go H20! Challenge." The challenge was created through a partnership between the plastics industries of the American Chemistry Council (ACC) and LA's BEST and aimed to educate children about the importance of drinking water for healthy living and the earth-friendly benefits of reusing and recycling more plastics. Assemblymember Isadore Hall, III, Assistant Speaker pro Tempore made a special visit to 112th Street Elementary School to congratulate the students in his district.

As part of the program, ACC provided LA's BEST students at 91 sites in Los Angeles with reusable and recyclable water bottles. The bottles served to remind students to make a habit of drinking water instead of sugary drinks and the importance of recycling.

"The 'Go H20! Challenge' has been an exciting addition to our program and has helped our students and their families learn to reduce, reuse, and recycle," said Carla Sanger, LA's BEST President and CEO. "It is great to have the support of Assemblymember Hall and ACC as we work to encourage healthy habits like drinking more water and recycling awareness among our students."

Today's celebration at 112th Street Elementary School honored the students from 109th Street and 112th Street Elementary Schools for their participation and emphasized the importance of maintaining healthy habits.

"The health and education of our community's youth are top priorities for me, and I am happy to congratulate the students of LA's BEST on their completion of ACC's 'Go H20! Challenge,'" said Assemblymember Hall. "I hope these students will continue to spread the message about recycling and healthy habits so we can all live in a healthier community."
