Recyclable Art Contest and Exhibit
April 1 @ 8:00 am - 1:30 pm
We are excited to announce our 2022 Annual Youth Recyclable Art Contest and Exhibit.
Students will enter works of art made entirely of recycled and repurposed materials to be judged by local community members in the arts and conservation fields.
The contest is open to youth in grades K-12, and we encourage participation from local public/private/charter schools, homeschooled students, Scout troop members, and other youth groups and organizations in Adams County. All entrants will receive a certificate of participation, and cash prizes will be awarded to the top three pieces in each age group (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12)
Best in Show, Repurposed Art Awards, and the People’s Choice Award. Entries can be submitted from our online form or printed and submitted on our drop-off/deadline dates, March 28th and 29th, 2022.
The exhibit opening reception/judging will be on Friday, April 1, 2022, and the formal awards ceremony will be on Thursday, April 21, 2022. The contest is sponsored by OPEN MINDS, McDonald’s, the Gettysburg Recycling Committee, and the Gettysburg Green Gathering.
