Calling All Kids: Enter the Recycling Poster Contest

It's a bird. It's a plane. It's a … recycler?  Yes, recyclers are the new superheroes and will finally get the recognition they deserve this fall thanks to the 2015 Spokane County Recycles Poster Contest.

The contest, sponsored by the Spokane County Regional Solid Waste System, invites students in kindergarten through eighth grade to submit artwork focused on an annual waste reduction theme. Winners will be selected to illustrate the county's 2016 Spokane County Recycles calendar.

2015 Contest Theme: “Real Heroes Recycle:  Be a Spokane County Superhero!”
Students in grades K-8 who either live in or attend schools in jurisdictions that participate in the Spokane County Regional Solid Waste System are invited to enter the 16th annual poster contest.

Finalists will have their work displayed in River Park Square from Oct. 27 through Nov. 16 as part of America Recycles Day, a national celebration that takes place Nov. 15. Thirteen of the finalists' work also will be used to illustrate a 2016 calendar with hints on how to reduce waste, and student artists will be recognized at a meeting of the Spokane County Commissioners.

Contest Deadline:  Friday, October 16
Posters must be on letter-sized paper, oriented horizontally, and done in colored pencils, markers, or crayons, no 3-D collages accepted. A complete list of participating school districts, other rules and a registration form can be obtained at or by calling 509.625.6580.
