About 50 New Albany elementary students attended a Columbus Crew soccer game on SWACO's tab Sunday.

Through a SWACO and Crew sponsored contest, two classes won tickets to Sunday's game by creating posters that encourage recycling.

Fourth-grader Hannah Santantonio and fifth-grader Jessica Bernard won the contest and tickets for their classmates. Santantonio is a student of Christina Brown and Bernard is in Janice Hayes' class.

According to SWACO, the contest was implemented to find other ways to encourage recycling in the district that recycled 2.2-tons last year.
