Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority (FRWA) and KESAB environmental solutions have announced the Waste to Sculpture Primary School Recycled Art Competition. Primary Schools from throughout the Fleurieu have been invited to put together a sculpture from recycled material. Seven Primary School sites have registered for the competition.
Once completed, sculptures will remain at the school to ensure maximum exposure within the school community. Photographs of the sculptures will be on display at this year’s Leafy Sea Dragon Festival at the Bungala Park Family Fun Day on 13th April. The display will then move to the “Hooked on Books” store in Yankalilla. The community are invited to place votes on their favourite sculptures when visiting the display or via the KESAB facebook page: www.facebook.com/KESABenvironmentalsolutions
The Waste to Sculpture competition is to play a role in educating students at participating primary schools as well as the associated communities within the council areas of Alexandrina, Yankalilla, Victor Harbour and Kangaroo Island about the importance of reuse and recycling and using the correct bin.
First, Second and Third cash prizes will be awarded based on community votes and the decision made by the judging panel. Schools are to use recycled and recyclable materials to form sculptures. Additional merit will be given to schools who indicate how their sculpture will be used to link to education about recycling as well as how the sculptures themselves may also be recycled at the end of the project. Winners will be announced in an award ceremony to be held at the FRWA office on 30th May 2013.
