John Hargreaves has announced the Easter Egg Foil Ball Competition to be held in our schools for a $1,000 prize.
â€œTerritory and Municipal Services is giving a school the opportunity to win $1000 by making the ACTâ€™s (and maybe even the worldâ€™s) biggest Easter egg foil ball,â€ said Mr Hargreaves.
â€œAll schools have to do is encourage students to bring in their Easter egg foil following the Easter break (up until Friday 4 May), and produce a single ball on behalf of the school. The winner will be determined by weight and size.
â€œThe competition is aimed at educating students (and the community) that aluminium foil can be recycled. The foil that Easter eggs, Easter Bilbies and Easter Bunnies are wrapped in is recyclable and can be used to make new things, like soft drink cans, ladders, door frames and even car parts!
Words fail me.
(But for schools eager to trouser the cash we recommend starting with a beach ball and wrapping it in lead plate)
