In honor of Earth Day 2014, the City of Vallejo Recycling Division will be hosting the 4th Annual Recycled Sculpture and Art Contest.
Vallejo residents will be challenged to turn recyclable materials into masterpieces of art, and have a chance of winning up to $1,000.
The contest will be used as an educational tool to stress the importance of the 3 R’s (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle).
All artwork must be fabricated from reused, and/or, recyclable materials. The contest is intended to change people’s perception about the materials that are commonly viewed as trash, and/or, having little value.
Various pieces of the recycled art will be displayed in the lobby of City Hall during the week prior to Earth Day (April 14 through April 18).
Entries must be received no later than 4 p.m. on Friday, April 4 and should be dropped off at City Hall on the fourth floor during regular business hours.
The artwork will be judged on creativity, originality and the most imaginative use of recyclable materials.
All prizes will be awarded at the City’s Earth Day Event, which will be held in conjunction with the Farmers Market on Georgia Street and Virginia Street from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 19.
