Recology Poster Contest - Prizes!
RethinkWaste is calling on all 3rd through 5th grade students in its service area to show off their artistic talents in the Agency’s third annual America Recycles Day Poster Contest. The theme of the contest is “Rethink Waste - Be Recycled!” which is in line with the
national theme for this year’s America Recycles Day. This means you are actively choosing to live a recycled lifestyle by committing to reduce, reuse, recycle. The winning artwork will be prominently displayed and used on various RethinkWaste public education and outreach materials in 2017.
The posters must be 8.5 x 14 inches and any medium can be used, including paint, markers, crayons, colored pencils. Bright, rich colors are encouraged. Only one entry per student will be accepted and posters must include original artwork only.
The posters must be submitted by 5 pm on Friday, October 28, 2016 to RethinkWaste at 610 Elm Street, Suite 202 (second floor of the San Carlos Library) in San Carlos. A total of five posters that best meet the criteria will be chosen out of all of the entries and posted online for the public to vote for their top three favorites. Online voting will take place November 2-November 7, 2016 and winners will be notified by November 10, 2016 and recognized at this year's America Recycles Day event at the Shoreway Environmental Center on November 19, 2016.
