"We've been a part of New York for 75 years, and as the city changes, so do we," noted D'Agostino in a statement. "[N]ow we're asking the students of the metropolitan area to create our new recyclable bag that you can bring with you each time you shop. By honoring our students and our environment, we're giving something back to our city."
To be eligible, participants must be high school or college students. They can find the entry form and the template for the bag size area from www.dagnyc.com. The deadline to enter is Jan. 30, 2008.
