Recycle Colorado's 17th Annual Poster Contest: Trash to Treasure!

Recycle Colorado's 17th Annual Poster Contest: Trash to Treasure!

Students are encouraged every year to incorporate the theme of our poster contest into their artwork. This years theme was “Trash to Treasure”. Students were encouraged to either create a poster demonstrating the possibilities of upcycling or develop a creative innovation out of upcycled materials and take a picture of it for submission.

Upcycling or “creative reuse” is the process of using trash or unwanted products in a new way, giving them a second chance. For example, after you use the pasta sauce in a glass jar, you can clean the jar and use it as a pencil holder or cup. The possibilities are endless with upcycling. It not only benefits your community and the environment, but also your future!

We had over 120 poster submitted from students all over the state! The 1st place winners received a winners certificate and a $100 gift card for themselves and their classrooms. The 2nd and 3rd place winners received a winners certificate.

Thank you to our Sponsors!
