Amount Recycled: 3,100+ aluminum beverage cans
Prize Money Awarded: $3,000

Thanks to the participation of 896 cadets from all eight companies, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA) has won the Great American Can Roundup’s Commander-in-Chief’s Challenge two years in a row. The USGCA is the smallest of the service academies, but cadets won by recycling the most cans per capita. Their achievement is recognized with an engraved plate on the Commander-in-Chief’s Perpetual Trophy.

In the Intra-Academy competition, the Foxtrot Company took top honors and received a $500 check and commemorative tray. Cadets Eva Sandri, Victor Broskey, Ivon Lassale and Carlie Gilligan accepted the award in a ceremony at the Hall of Heroes at The Pentagon on April 21, 2015.

Congratulations, USCGA cadets!
