The one side effect for families during the pandemic has been the number of take-out and delivery containers they accumulate each week.
Trash cans are fuller than ever, with most of us eating at home or just spending more time there, so the City of Coral Springs wants students to show their love for the planet by using recycled materials they find around the community and turning them into art.
Coral Springs Museum of Art Director Jill Brown said, “As the city gears up to celebrate Earth Day on April 22, launching this virtual recycled art contest was a no-brainer.”
Starting Thursday through April 15, the city hosts a virtual art– or trash– contest where students create a 2D or 3D piece and submit a photo of their work where a first, second, and third place winner is selected from each grade.
The winners will be recognized on the city’s website, social media platforms and displayed at the Coral Springs Museum of Art entrance from April 22 through April 30, 2021.
Their artwork will be judged by city staff, and the winners will be announced on Earth Day, April 22, 2021.
