Clean Kids

From Lost Hills to Ridgecrest, the Clean Kids puppet shows provide an opportunity for students to become teachers. Ten children use ventriloquist-sized puppets to deliver waste management messages to the rest of the school. With more than a decade of school participation, this award- winning program has to be seen to be appreciated. Once the puppets have been to your school – Principals want them back every year!
