By extending this campaign nationally Environ Association sought engagement of students and teachers in a positive competition on the selective collection based on student essay contests and projects competitions between schools. The objectives of this campaign were both the young segment awareness on the necessity of selective collection of electronic waste equipment and batteries, and the effective collection of these waste streams.
Thus, the first prize winners at the essay contest, conducted in 3 age categories are: Andreas Niţu (grades I-IV), Daniela Sonntag (grade V-VIII) and Traian Alexandru Vasile N. (grade IX -XII). At the collection contest projects implemented at school level, the winning institution was the High School of Natural Sciences " Grigore Antipa” in Botosani, and at the collection of WEEE and batteries contest won the Technical College" Maria Băiulescu", Brasov.

Also, the teachers who participated in the campaign, coordinators of “Baterel and the Non-E World” were rewarded with honorary degrees at the Awards Gala for the involvement and consistency they showed in these 8 months of cooperation.
"At the end of a successful campaign, we can say that we managed to put a first milestone on the winding road that leads to a new recycling society. We propose that this should go on and on and through this campaign to achieve public environmental awareness and education for the children in I – XII grades, which are perhaps the most influential persons in determining eco-responsible behavior among parents, grandparents or close relatives”, says Andrei Orban, the President of Environ Association.
2011-2012 Edition of the campaign “Baterel and the Non-E World” had practical results by involving over 200 schools and high schools in 16 counties and Bucharest and by collecting about 10 tons of waste equipment and batteries. A new edition of the campaign will be launched by Environ in September 2012, aiming to engage all public and private schools in building a national collection and recycling of electrical and electronic waste equipment.
