Tallahassee's DeSoto Trail and Bond Elementary participated in a competition to see who could recycle the most phone books.
DeSoto students recycled 4,800 books, earning a grant for $1,500.
But, Bond Elementary came out on top, getting a check for $3,500 for recycling 5,400 books.
The money was awarded through R.H. Donnelley, the printer of Embark phone books.
Combined both schools saved about 440 trees.
