Elementary schools in the School District of Washington participated in a friendly competition with each other and parochial elementary schools in the area in a collection of tabs from soda cans.

The soda can tabs collection will go toward benefiting the Ronald McDonald House.

Overall, approximately 1,100 pounds of tabs were collected between all of the schools and the police department.

Campbellton Elementary collected the most tabs among the small schools.

Washington West Elementary collected the most tabs among the large schools.

As a result, students from Campbellton and Washington West got to throw pies in the faces of officers and from the Washington Police Department and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department, along with school administrators.
