2nd Annual Student Upcycled Art Contest (4/21)

In honor of Earth Day 2022, LexZeroWaste is holding its 2nd Annual Student Upcycled Art Contest. Students in grades K-12 are invited to create an original piece of art from items that would normally be thrown away. Potential materials include items like candy or snack food wrappers, plastic straws, styrofoam, used milk cartons, pet food bags, plastics that can’t be recycled, etc. All entrants are encouraged to be creative and use as many non-recyclable, non-compostable waste items as possible!

Submissions will be made by uploading a digital photo of the artwork via this form by 5 pm April 21, 2022. Entries will be evaluated by a panel of local artists, including collage artist Mandy Settembre, painter Judy Ellen Sanders, and painter Amantha Tsaros. Winners will be notified via email on Sunday, April 24. In the spirit of reuse, winners will receive prize baskets of gently used or like new arts and crafts supplies that have been generously donated by members of our community. If you have items that may be suitable for inclusion in the prize baskets, donations are still being accepted. Please contact Anne Richtarik to arrange any possible donations, or if you have questions about the contest.
