The Nevada Recycles program has partnered with The Venetian and The Palazzo in Las Vegas to support a statewide recycled art contest to increase Nevadans’ awareness and interest in recycling. Entrants must be Nevada residents and projects must be composed of used recyclable materials.
In addition to a $200 prize to the first place class project, The Venetian and The Palazzo will provide first, second and third prizes ($250, $100 and $50 respectively) in five categories: Kindergarten-Grade 5, Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12, Class Project and Adult.
Materials that can be used include, but are not limited to, tires, electronics, appliances, plastic bags, bottles, batteries and aluminum cans. Fastening materials may include tape, glue and/or string.
Winners will be announced prior to America Recycles Day, which is Wednesday, November 15. More information about the contest, along with submission guidelines, is available at NevadaRecycles.nv.gov.
