Posters must be letter size (8 1/2 x 11) and drawn horizontally. You may use marker, crayon or colored pencil; no 3-D collages please. The student's name must not appear on the front of the poster.
Primary considerations for judging are, in priority:
Use of the theme "I Recycle Because..."
Artistic ability - attractive and grade appropriate
(Tip: make any text large enough to be legible at a distance.)
Up to 30 finalists will be selected for display at River Park Square from Oct. 27 to Nov. 20. Finalists will also receive special recognition at a Board of County Commissioners meeting in November as part of the American Recycles Day celebration.
Fifteen (15) posters will be selected from the finalists to illustrate the 2018 Spokane Recycles Calendar. Students may enter individually or as part of a class.
Posters must be received by 5 p.m. on Friday Oct. 13, at Spokane's Waste to Energy facility, 2900 S. Geiger Blvd., Spokane WA 99224. (If hand delivering, go to the administration building and leave with the receptionist.)
Entrants must be in grades K-8 and either reside or attend school in a jurisdiction that participates in the Spokane County Regional Solid Waste System. Complete a signed release form and attach it to the back of the completed poster with small pieces of tape - no glue, staples or paper clips. Do not fold poster.
