Turn litter into a “Trashter Piece”

ART - THRASHERThe old idiom of “One person’s trash is another’s treasure,” has never been more accurate and now you might win an iPad Mini 3 to boot.  Be a creative, turn your trash and litter into a “Trashter Piece.” Take everyday trash and litter such as plastic bottles, potato chip bags, pieces of metal, rubber tires, food cans, boots, plates, aluminum and make them into a memorable piece of art. Even better, comb the beaches and marshes for litter and turn that into great art. (Food by-products and/or animal parts cannot be used.)

Name your Trashter Piece: if you are using fishing lines and old hooks found on the shoreline – “Hook, Line & Sinker”; found lots of cigarette butts – “No Butts About It”; found random pieces of metal – “Hot & Bothered” and so forth. Think outside the box for an eye-catching title. The art category is “Wildlife Inspired.”

There are three categories for art submission: grades K – 6, grades 7 – 12, adults.

The entry deadline is Thursday, Dec. 31, 2015 with the art selection conducted during February 2016. All prizes will be awarded on March 18, 2016 at 6 p.m. at the Palmetto Sportsman Classic at the State Fairgrounds in Columbia. Get complete contest rules and an application at www.dnr.sc.gov/up2u.
