This trash-to-art contest encourages kids to create art out of materials that otherwise would have been thrown away while learning about animals. The Zoological Society is hosting its annual eco-themed art contest for children ages 17 and under. Participate and win fun prizes! Here’s how it works: Kids can pick any kind of discarded materials, such as soda cans and bottles. Then, create an art project using these recycled materials only (tape and glue are okay). This year's theme is "Animals of North America." Artwork should include creatures you can find in North America such as bison, cougars and raccoons.
Arrangements should be made ahead of time to drop off entries between Sept. 18 and Sept. 26 by 3 p.m. All entries will be featured here, on our website, after judging.
