Students from the Town of North Hempstead are once again invited to participate in the town’s Recycled Artwork Contest.
The Recycled Artwork Contest is a chance for students to harness their creativity to promote recycling in schools and local communities in an effort to better the environment. The town invites young minds to come together and collaborate with one powerful message in mind: recycle, reuse and rethink.
The Recycled Artwork Contest features hundreds of entries and thousands of participants. All students in grades K-12 in Town of North Hempstead school districts or who live in the town are welcome to participate in the contest. The opportunities are endless. Each student must use reclaimed, recyclable materials made of metals, paper, rubber, plastic or cloth (no glass). All artwork must be labeled and entered by Nov. 30.
Entries will be judged by the North Hempstead Arts Advisory Committee. This year, the winners of the Recycled Artwork Contest will be honored at The Gold Coast Arts Center on Monday Dec. 7 at a special ceremony at 6 p.m. and all entries will be displayed from Dec. 7 through Jan. 1, 2016 in the gallery at The Gold Coast Arts Center.
All artwork should be delivered directly to the The Gold Coast Arts Center, located at 113 Middle Neck Rd., Great Neck, NY 11021. It must be accompanied by a release form; please call 311 for information. Unless prior arrangements are made, all entries become the property of The Town of North Hempstead. Please make sure entries are limited in size to 60 inches in height by 30 inches tall. To propose a different size, please contact the Office of Sustainability to discuss.
For more information, call 311 or 516-869-6311 to reach the Office of Sustainability.
