Ozarks Christian Academy in West Plains won last year's contest for the 3-5-Grade Category and Grand Prize for its "Get a Heart... Recycle! Tin Man" entry created by 11 grammar school students of teachers Angela Littlejohn and Denise Estes. According to their entry, the school's spring play was The Wizard of Oz and the students decided to keep with that theme and do a Tin Man trashcan. Since the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz is longing for a heart, they decided 'Get a Heart...Recycle!' was a perfect logo for their Trash Can Tin Man.
