Fifth-grade students Malakai Ramos and Esmeralda Velasquez won first and second place, respectively, in the first through fifth grade category of the “Recycling in San Antonio” T-shirt design contest, sponsored by the City of San Antonio Solid Waste Management Department.

The citywide contest asked students to design a creative T-shirt to promote recycling in San Antonio. To celebrate the big news, the school welcomed a surprise visitor.

The San Antonio Spurs Coyote sprang through the gym doorway to the loud cheers of more than 500 students.

Full of energy and excitement, the students welcomed him by chanting “Go Spurs Go!”

The Coyote then presented each student with his and her own T-shirt featuring their beautiful design. Their physical education coach, Eva Ramos, also received one for helping and encouraging them along the way.

“It’s important for them to know that a clean city means a healthier you, and that’s what we are trying to teach kids, to be healthy and to keep their community and environment healthy – and recycling is big part of that,” Ramos said. “The kids couldn’t believe it, I’m just so proud of them.”

As winners, both students enjoyed Spurs game tickets for the March 5 game, parking passes and on-court recognition during half time.

The T-shirt designs will be now used throughout the city to promote the importance of recycling in San Antonio.

Way to go, Falcons!
