Fifth grader John Tiseo was the surfer dude. He said he thought up the idea of using hard-to-recycle items to make the costume.
John said he and his teammate, Will Varvaro, worked for about five or six hours to create the costume, which John modeled. They used Styrofoam for the surfboard, old baby curtains for the bathing suit and old shower curtains for the T-shirt, and also used old http://www.lafemmedressescheap.com/la-femme-16546-gold-sequined-long-prom-dress-p-97.html flip-flops.
"I wasn't nervous at all," he said. "It was fun. I learned that every day is Earth Day and the real meaning of reuse and recycle to reduce the amount of trash."
Anthony Johnson modeled the "robotic porcupine" that he and teammates Jarrid Moriber and Lucas Baksay crafted from plastic water bottles and a cardboard box.
Anthony said they worked for two-and-a-half days, using scissors and drilling holes in the box to insert the bottles. They then spray painted it green.
"It was pretty exciting and fun walking down the stage," he said. A helmet inside the headpiece kept it in place.
The first-place winners each received a $15 gift certificate to iTunes, the second-place winners got $10 gift cards to Barnes & Noble, and the third-place winners got stainless steel reusable water bottles.

Out of 22 teams this year, eight were boys teams. Although none of the boys team won, they had an enthusiastic showing, Ms. Teed said.
"I would have to say that out of the seven teams that dropped out, most of them were boys," she said. "They might have associated the fashion show with a girl thing."
But that's not what it's all about, she said. It's about educating students to get engaged to protect the Earth and create a greener world.
Since she started the initiative five years ago, she has been successful in lobbying the state to install no-idling signs in the car pickup loop.
Some of the fourth graders explained the process of how kids can go green by doing simple things like shutting off the water while brushing their teeth, turning http://www.lafemmedressescheap.com/style-15305-la-femme-prom-poly-chiffon-dress-for-cheap-p-169.html the lights off when they leave a room and carpooling.
"I asked the kindergarten to second graders who would like to do it when they are fifth graders, and so many raised their hands."
