Mr. Funnelhead Art Contest Winner For the 2nd year in a row, the countywide Mr. Funnelhead Poster Contest 1st place winner has been an Antioch student! Hundreds of entries from schools all across Contra Costa County are submitted. Contestants create posters on motor oil recycling, and the winners get to be in the next Mr. Funnelhead PSA. Congratulations, Alexandra Mora of Kimball Elementary. In a few months, all three winners will be filming a commercial with Mr. Funnelhead for Nickelodeon and Cartoon network.
What is Mr. Funnelhead?
Each year, between the months of October and May, The Mr. Funnelhead Show travels to 17 schools throughout Contra Costa County. Since the programs beginning in 1996, Mr. Funnelhead has educated over 130,000 first, second, third, fourth and fifth grade students about the importance of storm drain pollution and the recycling of used motor oil and filters.
Each one of the forty-minute skits stars Mr. Funnelhead, a lovable, grime-fighting superhero who entertains while he teaches students about the proper recycling of used motor oil and storm drain pollution. Along the way, Mr. Funnelhead encounters different characters improperly disposing used motor oil. The shows include a state of the art sound system, lights, special effects and quality actors.
