Students from Utah schools have won more than $39,000 from the Pepsi Cola Co. for hoarding pop bottle caps for recycling, spokeswoman Beth Wolfer said Friday.
The winning schools had the highest ratio of bottle caps per student, which gave smaller schools an equal chance, said Wolfer. Each school received a check for their caps and a certificate for a video cassette recorder.Students across the state collected 780,000 caps, which were donated to the Hogle Zoo recycling program.
Milford Elementary School, Milford, collected about 9,800 caps and earned $790, said Wolfer. Springdale Elementary School, Springdale, earned about $450 with almost 3,000 caps; Grand County Middle School, Moab, earned $415; Salt Lake Lutheran High School earned $337 and Conqueror's Academy, a private elementary school in Midvale, earned $321.
Wolfer said most schools planned to spend the money on extras such as playground equipment or field trips.
