Colorado's Youth Dig into their Creativity to Create Compost Art!

The 16th Annual Recycle Colorado Poster Contest kicked off in March this year and was very successful! This years theme was "Colorado Loves Clean Compost which asked students to help us illustrate why composting is important to our state and the people who live in it. We received over 160 poster submissions from 24 different school across the state. We love to see the creativity the kids bring each year, whether its from our up and coming digital graphic designers, or classic marker, paint and crayon artists, to the realists who used compostable and non-compostable items to demonstrate what they have learned. 

As the Front Range & many others implement new composting guidelines, we tried to utilize this contest as a way for kids to express their creativity while also learning about an important part of our waste diversion efforts in Colorado. Winners from this year will have the opportunity to also tour a composting facility this June. More to come on this...

This year we selected a first, second and third place winner from each of our 5 age groups. First place winners received a $100 gift card and winners certificate and second and third place winners received a winners certificate. Teachers of the first place winners received a gift card which they can use for supplies for their classrooms during the next school year.

This was all made possible by this year's Sponsors!

A special thanks to Recycle Colorado Board Members Samantha Bailey, Charlie Kamenides, Neil Noble, and Jennifer Richardson for their help with organizing and making this year's contest possible.
