The Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) would invites high school students to participate in it’s 17th annual America Recycles Day Sculpture Contest. Two entries will be accepted from each high school (additional entries may become available later). The “Rethink Recycling” Sculpture Contest gives students the chance to be inventive and create a sculpture made from recyclable or reused materials. Judges will select an overall winning sculpture along with individual recognition for creativity, workmanship and use of materials. Additionally, a “People’s Choice Award” is given. Past contests received national recognition and television news airtime.
The “Rethink Recycling” Sculpture Contest will be held on Friday, November 30, 2018 at MDE in Baltimore, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Due to the nature of the contest, only individual entries (no teams) are allowed. Participating students will be allowed to bring two guests to the judging event and each participant’s teacher will be invited to the contest. Prizes provided from corporate and non-profit organization sponsors will be awarded to all contest entrants. Past prizes have included items such as gift cards, speakers, and a laptop.
Space is limited so schools/teachers must complete the School Entry Form and return it to MDE by October 26, 2018. For more details, please visit the MDE website.
