Calling All Kids! Are you creative? Do you like to work with your hands? Do you have a flair for repurposing discarded objects? Then you will want to enter our first Recycle Art Contest for kids. All kids 14 and under are eligible to enter. Try your hand at recycled art, by forming your own trash sculptures or artistry drawings. These art works will be on display in the Valley Ranch office during April 2014. Winners will be announced during Earth Day week at the Valley Ranch Recycle Day on April 19th. One grand winner and two runners-up will be awarded prizes.
Each entry must include the artist’s name as well as the name of the school he/she attends. Entries must be submitted to the Valley Ranch office no later than 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 11, 2014. Parents are discouraged from helping. The goal is to call attention to the child’s creativity. If you are a resident child under the age of 14, living in either a residence or apartment complex, you are allowed to enter. Contest is open from March 31, 2014 through April 11, 2014. Winners will be announced on April 19, 2014.
