Recycled Art Contest


    Entry Form & Flyer

    Previous Winners


    Help us encourage Nevadans to recycle! Your participation in the Recycled Art Contest will show off not only the many recyclable materials around us, but will also highlight how creativity can reduce the amount of waste sent to the landfill. Recycling is great; reducing and reusing are even better. We look forward to seeing the results of your craftiness!


      • The theme for 2018 is “The Art of Plastic”
      • Must be a Nevada resident
      • Projects must be made with used or found plastic materials such as straws, bottles, cups, bags and/or utensils. They may also include fasteners such as glue, tape, string or similar materials, and other materials required for structure or support.
      • The use of paint is discouraged, as it requires the consumption of new materials. However, if you have some old paint sitting in the garage that you've been meaning to get rid of, consider using it up on your project instead of landfilling it!


        • Fill out the entry form and save it with your information added in.  Upload your completed entry form with up to two photos to our online file system.
