of 2014 CMS Paint A Can Contest! 

         $12,500 Awarded to the Top 5 Winning Schools!  


Mecklenburg County is happy to announce that Northeast Middle School took first place in the 2014 CMS Paint A Can Program! Hosted by Keep Mecklenburg Beautiful, and made possible by the generosity of sponsors Coca-Cola Bottling, Republic Services, ReCommunity, and Sherwin Williams, Paint A Can recognized and rewarded elementary, middle and high schools throughout the County for thinking creatively about recycling.

Registered teams were provided with everything they needed for students to design and then paint a recycling-themed landscape on their exterior recycling containers. Five lucky schools rose to the top and took home their shares of the $12,500 bounty.
