Schools can turn rubbish into art for prizes

PARK Beach Plaza together with The Coffs Coast Advocate, Coffs Coast Waste Services and 2CS-FM are calling on all schools in the region to register for the first Clean Up Australia Day Recycled Sculpture competition.

The competition explores the creative potential of recycling school and household waste items and aims to inspire others to see the possibility in things that may have otherwise been thrown away.

The participating schools will have their sculptures exhibited at Park Beach Plaza from March 4 for public voting, which will decide which schools win a share of $10,000 in prize money.

The competition aims to draw focus to the benefits of recycling and has been developed to encourage community participation and education.

In return for registering every school will receive a free school recycling assessment and program from Coffs Coast Waste Services and Park Beach Plaza.

 

School registrations close at 5pm on Friday. For further information contact Park Beach Plaza on 6652 4366.
