Samsung Mobile Announces the Winners of its in-School Education and Recycling Program Sweepstakes

DALLAS, September 1, 2010 - Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), the No.1 mobile phone provider in the U.S.1, officially announced the winners of the sweepstakes included in its nationwide in-school education and recycling program. Samsung Mobile is pleased to announce Geneva High School in Geneva, OH is the recipient of a back-to-school concert by pop/rock band Hey Monday. In addition, fifty schools will receive $1,000 “Green Grants” to put towards making their school more environmentally friendly.

Samsung Mobile’s eco-focused in-school education and recycling program, which ran from April 1 – June 1, educated teens about the importance and ease of mobile phone recycling. Students learned about the importance of mobile phone recycling and the impact that it can have, both environmentally and socially, and participated in activities that will allow them to educate their peers, parents and local communities..

“Samsung Mobile is very excited to announce the winners of our in-school education and recycling program sweepstakes. We’d like to thank all the participating schools for their recycling efforts and for helping to spread the word about the importance of recycling mobile phones,” said Paul Golden, chief marketing officer of Samsung Mobile. “Congratulations to Geneva High School, the recipient of a concert by Hey Monday, and to the additional fifty schools who will receive green grants.”

“I am very proud of the wonderful job our science department did in instilling the importance of protecting our environment to our students,” said Douglas Wetherholt, principal of Geneva High School. “By using an easy platform, such as recycling a cell phone, our students were able to get involved and participate in a program that really made a difference.”

Samsung Mobile’s recycling efforts support Samsung’s Eco-Management 2013 Plan announced in July 2009. The plan details a comprehensive set of sustainability goals to be achieved by Samsung in 2013, which include the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from manufacturing and product, the development of eco-friendly product, financial investment in eco-management initiatives and enhanced green partnerships with suppliers and partners.

Geneva High School will receive a concert by Hey Monday in coming weeks.
