Registration to enter the 2016 Waste 2 Art Competition for Primary School students closes this Friday, 14 October 2016 at 11:59pm, Organised by the Hawkesbury City Council.

Hawkesbury City Council’s 'Waste 2 Art' Competition focuses on the REUSE part of the 3Rs of the waste hierarchy, (reuse, reduce, recycle) to specifically show how students can give waste a new purpose by transforming it into a creative piece of artwork. Through 'Waste 2 Art', Council hopes to encourage students to reduce, reuse and recycle waste.

Students are invited to create either 2D or 3D artworks, which must be made entirely of used/recycled materials. The creative works will be exhibited throughout National Recycling Week from 7 – 13 November at the Deerubbin Centre, Windsor with a presentation of prizes at an opening ceremony.

Students will be judged as per Stages 1, 2 & 3 (i.e. 1 = K to 2, 2 = 3 to 4, or 3 = 5 to 6) and four prizes will be awarded per stage:

 1st prize – $200 gift voucher for art supplies
 2nd Prize – $100 gift voucher for art supplies
 3rd Prize – $50 gift voucher for art supplies
 Highly Commended – art hamper.

The Mayor of Hawkesbury, Councillor Mary Lyons-Buckett encourages parents to register their interested children for the competition.

“I hope this competition helps school students to think about better ways to reduce, reuse and recycle waste,” the Mayor said.
