Kellogg Community College will celebrate Earth Day on Tuesday, April 22, with a number of events designed to get students to “think green.”

The events, which will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the reflecting pools area at the entrance to the College’s campus at 450 North Ave., Battle Creek, will include free T-shirt tie-dying, an eco-friendly art contest, recycling collection and giveaways for students.

The Earth Day activities are collaboratively sponsored by KCC’s Student Life office and student organizations including the Art League, Kampus Activities Board, Phi Theta Kappa, Spectrum and students from the College’s ART 103: Two-Dimension Design class.

TaNisha Parker, manager of Student Life at KCC, said the events are being held “to educate our students about sustainability and waste management. Additionally, the goal of Earth Day is to encourage our students to think green and recycle more.”

More information about the Earth Day Art Contest for KCC students, including submission guidelines, is available on KCC’s Scribd page at http://bit.ly/1j01BfI.

In the event of inclement weather, all Earth Day activities will be held in the Student Center.
