2023 Spokane Recycles Poster Contest

From Trash to Treasure: Recycling Works! That’s the theme for the 2023 Spokane County Recycles Poster Contest. Selected artwork will be used to educate county residents on the importance of reducing waste as we work towards conserving resources by giving new life to recyclables.

Local students in grades K-8 in Spokane County are invited to submit their creative interpretations of this year’s theme. Up to 15 winners will be featured in the 2024 Spokane Recycles calendar.

In addition, finalists will have their work on public display at River Park Square from Nov. 1 through Nov. 16 and be officially recognized by elected officials and solid waste professionals. The program is focused on Nov. 15, which is America Recycles Day.

Contest Deadline: Friday, Oct. 13, 5 p.m.

Posters must be on letter-sized paper, oriented horizontally, and done in colored pencils, markers, or crayons; no 3-D collages will be accepted. Other rules and a registration form can be obtained at or by calling 509.625.6580.

This contest is sponsored by the Spokane County Regional Solid Waste System.
