The more we CLYNK, the more we earn. And we are talking about more than just bragging rights! For every $1 we raise by recycling during the challenge period that runs from  January 29 - March 26, 2018, Hannaford will give us a $0.50 match.

At the end of that period, the top two schools who recycle the most will win an additional $1,500 and $1,000 cash prize from CLYNK. Last year CEMS and Pond Cove came in 1st and 2nd place for the entire state of Maine! Remember, w
