The Louisville Zoo invites Kentucky students from preschool through 12th grade to get involved in its 10th annual Trashformation: A Trash-to-Treasure Art Contest for Students. This annual contest is part of the Zoo’s Party for the Planet: A Month-Long Celebration of the Earth, powered by the LG&E and KU Foundation.
Students are encouraged to communicate the importance of recycling and sustainability through art. Using only recyclable items, students’ art submissions should express or interpret “Reuse, Reduce and Recycle.”
The contest is open to individual students or groups of four or more. Each student may enter only one project. Registration for the contest is appreciated by Feb. 19 and entries must be submitted online for virtual judging by March 4. A panel of judges will choose one winner from each category.
Winners will be notified between March 18-23 and be awarded at a press conference at the Zoo on March 26 at 11 a.m. For more information, including rules for submission, visit the Trashformation webpage on the Louisville Zoo website.
