Recycled Art Contest

SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — April is Earth Month.

U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii and Island Palm Communities are partnering to create exciting activities for Soldiers and their families to enjoy throughout the month.

IPC and USAG-HI are partnering to present the Annual Fun Fest and Earth Day Fest, April 7, here.

To help kickoff festivities, IPC and the Sgt. Yano Library will host the annual recycled art contest, “Trash-formation.” Built around the theme, “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle,” the contest is open to all ages: kids, teens and adults.

Awards will be presented to winners the following age categories:

•Ages 5–10;

•Ages 11-13;

•Ages 14-17; and

•Ages 18 years and older.

Participants can assemble their masterpiece from repurposed materials that would have ended up in the trash. Items such as scrap metal, used computer parts, newspaper, old clothing, aluminum and plastics can be used.

Art pieces must convey the message of reducing, reusing and recycling.

All entries will be displayed and judged at the Annual Fun Fest and Earth Day Fest. Awards will be presented to winning entries.


Pick up an entry form for the annual Trash-formation recycled art contest, “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle,” at the Sgt. Yano Library, Schofield Barracks, at all Island Palm Communities community centers and at www.IslandPalmCommunities.com/Go/Trashformation.
