Winner Declared!

When an unidentified contagious disease struck school photocopiers recently, causing them to chew up trees while contributing to climate change, there were schools across America that rose to the challenge. And on April 17th approximately 23,000 students in 30 schools across 13 U.S. States took part in The Great Copy Machine Epidemic of 2008.

Ultimately, the students at Grace Hill Elementary in Rogers, Arkansas solved the crisis by diagnosing their copy machine with a severe case of "Carbon Footprint Swollenitis".

They take home the title of "Copy Crisis Team of the Year" along with a $125 grant to purchase a tree and green their school.
