  • A panel of judges will rate the work based on these criteria: Integration and Transformation How are the recyclable items incorporated into the project to transform them into a piece of art? Creativity, Individuality, Originality, Uniqueness How does the piece of work reflect the theme of using recyclable materials to produce artwork that is unique?   Presentation, Looks Was the participant able to pull the materials together to create a neat, sturdy, clearly formed piece of art?
  • For our “Repurposed Art” category, judging will be considered separately from all other categories, but students may still be eligible to win in their grade or overall category. Judging will focus on students’ ability to transform their materials not only into art, but also an item that could be used in a person’s day-to-day life.
  • Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three entries in each category as follows: Grades K-2, Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12, and Repurposed Art. People’s Choice and Best of Show will also receive a cash prize.  All students will receive a certificate of participation.
