All K-12 students and youth organization members are invited to showcase their artistic talent and their commitment to the environment by participating in the Colorado Association for Recycling’s 9th annual poster contest.
Twelve (12) winners will receive prizes. One grand-prize winner receives a $100 gift card, and their winning artwork will serve as Colorado’s 2015 America Recycles Day (www.americarecyclesday.org) promotional piece and be distributed throughout the state. Plus, the grand-prize winner earns an organizational membership to the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education (CAEE) for their school.
Posters should be received by CAFR no later than April 27, 2015. Please mail entries early. Posters will be judged the week of April 27 and winners will be notified as soon as possible.
