Milwaukee ReStore 2012 Recycled Art Contest

The 2012 Recycled Art Contest, hosted by the Milwaukee ReStore, is officially open for entries! This is the third annual contest that challenges community members to take repurposed material from the ReStore and turn it into recycled art. The entries will be displayed in the ReStore and online for customers to vote on. The top five vote-getters will receive fabulous prizes.  The sky is the limit as to what you can design. From welding a dog together from tools, to redesigning a piece of furniture, to painting a window...IT'S COMPLETELY UP TO YOU! The only limit to this competition is that the materials used have to be from the ReStore. The only outside materials that may be used are adhesives. So, come down to the ReStore and put on your creative thinking caps! Entries are due by March 24th

1st Prize - $150
2nd Prize - $100
3rd Prize - $50
4th Prize - $25
5th Prize - ReStore T-shirt & Water Bottle
(Prize Money Awarded In The Form Of ReStore Gift Certificates)

A special "Kid's Bonus" will be awarded to any winners under the age of 15. In addition to the Gift Certificate, winners under the age of 15 will be awarded a mystery basket of goodies just for them!


-Create a work of art made entirely from repurposed materials at the ReStore! (adhesives excluded) All ages welcome! There is no limit to the amount of entries one can submit.

-Entries must be submitted to the ReStore by Saturday, March 24th. They will then be displayed in the store and voted on by customers. Winners will be announced on Earth Day, April 21st!
