Recycled Art Contest

Get ready to create! Recyclable materials are an important resource, and we want to show them off. In order to increase awareness of recyclable material, Montgomery County Solid Waste sponsors a contest in which students and their families are challenged to use recyclable materials to create a sculpture, piece of jewelry or both!

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Recycled Art Contest will be available online. Please submit photos of your entry to hagansl@mcohio.org. Winners will receive a plaque and may have their artwork displayed at the Montgomery County Environmental Learning Center! 

If you have any questions contact Lorelei Hagans-Floyd at 937-781-3065 or hagansl@mcohio.org.
