Sister and brother Nora and Emmett Allen have both earned scholarships to attend a weeklong LEGO Summer Camp – the grand prize in an innovative contest to create the best home-crafted trash truck.
The local siblings’ winning entry was announced on June 18 by the Museum of Ventura County, which sponsored the contest.
The trash truck contest was the highlight of a weekend, recycling-focused drive-thru event hosted May 1-2 by the Museum of Ventura County.
Harrison was the main sponsor of the youth-oriented family event, which also included the giveaway of grab bags full of fun and educational goodies.
“Small Footprints: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” was the theme of the simple, COVID-safe “Grab-and-Go” event, which sought to promote the vital importance of children learning to recycle and protect the environment, for their own future.
“The Museum of Ventura County is grateful to have a long and meaningful relationship with E.J. Harrison,” said museum development director Eric Knight, “and we’re honored to have this opportunity to once again work with the Harrison family, in bringing this message of sustainability to the public.”
