RECYCLED ART CONTEST

METAMORPHOSIS: TRASH TO TREASURE V

Green Hope Project invites elementary, middle school, high school, and
adults to submit entries for our upcoming Trash to Treasure V recycled art
contest. The contest is being held in conjunction with Earth Day events to
promote recycling and raise awareness about current issues regarding pollution.

This project began with the El Dorado High School art students adopting a
section of the highway to clean up and then turning what they found into
artwork. Workshops have been given (and will continue to be given) to
educate the community about how they can reuse these materials. These
workshops, and other events, will continue with the newly established non-
profit, Green Hope Project. It was born out of the desire for former high
school students, community members, and local business owners to continue
with, and improve upon, what It's Your World Project began.
The exhibit will be held virtually this year, in conjunction with our
Environmental Summit. Artwork must have some component of recycled
materials used in it. The judges will take into account the use of materials
when choosing works for the exhibition. The theme/subject matter is open, so
long as an obvious portion of it is from recycled objects. By means of the
Arts, our objective is to raise awareness about environmental concerns. This
is one of the ways that we support educational achievement, environmental

stewardship, and the arts in our community.
