Little Rock Wastewater’s 11th Annual Pollution Prevention Ceremony
Little Rock Wastewater will be celebrating its 11th Annual Pollution Prevention Ceremony on Wednesday October 29, 2008. LRW has also involved its Partner in Education, Central High School, by way of an essay contest. This year LRW is “Partnering with Our Students and Industry: Shaping the Future for Pollution Prevention.” Industry presenters at this year’s event will be Dassault Falcon Jet, Unilever (Skippy) and University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
The Pollution Prevention Award program began in 1998 as a way of recognizing and rewarding industries that adopt the most vigorous pollution prevention activities into the management philosophy and to promote the utilization of pollution prevention activities. In conjunction with this year’s theme, “Partnering with Our Students and Industry: Shaping the Future for Pollution Prevention,” LRW is cooperating with a Partner in Education, Little Rock Central High (LRCH) by way of an essay contest and facilitating an opportunity for Little Rock businesses to meet and discuss real world success stories of implementing good Pollution Prevention.
Dassault Falcon Jet, Unilever (Skippy) and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences will speak on pollution prevention practices they implement at their respective facilities. LRW is offering scholarship awards to the three (3) student essay finalists from LRCH who will present their papers covering Pollution Prevention practices at the event. Each Industry present at the event will have the opportunity to vote for the best paper and award 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for the LRW scholarships.
This year’s event and luncheon will take place at Next Level Events, 1400 West Markham in the Genesis III room, adjacent to the Historic Union Station from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on October 29, 2008.
