Trash to Treasures Contest

Ages 10 – 18, individuals or groups.

Have trash collecting around your house? Turn trash into treasure! The challenge is to create a functional item or a piece of artwork from things that would otherwise be discarded. A bunch of old newspapers can become clothing; an old pair of jeans can become curtains or pillows; a sculpture can be created out of bottle caps!

Whatever your idea we want you to create either a functional item, or a piece of artwork, from things that would otherwise have been discarded.

Entry forms and submission guidelines can be found at

Submissions will be accepted from March 1st to April 2nd, 2012.

Shortlisted entries will be displayed at a Judging and Showcase event for others to see and gain inspiration. Prizes will be awarded by a panel of community judges, who will be looking for the creativity, practicality and originality of the item as well as the percentage that has been transformed, reused or recycled.

Need a little time, space or inspiration to get your “treasure” started? Some locations are offering programs – check the teen program listings or the library guide.
