Waste 2 Art 2017

Hawkesbury City Council will be holding the Primary School 'Waste 2 Art' Competition again in 2017, as part of Local Government Week (31 July - 6 August 2017).

'Waste 2 Art' focuses on the REUSE part of the 3Rs of the waste hierarchy, (reuse, reduce, recycle) to specifically show how students can give waste a new purpose by transforming it into a creative piece of artwork. Through 'Waste 2 Art', Council hopes to encourage students to reduce, reuse and recycle waste.

Students are invited to create unique and individual artworks that can be either 2D or 3D. They must be made entirely of used/recycled materials. The creative works will be exhibited throughout Local Government Week at the Deerubbin Centre, Windsor with a presentation of prizes at an opening ceremony on Monday 31 July at 6pm.

Students will be judged as per Stages 1, 2 & 3 (i.e. 1 = K to 2, 2 = 3 to 4, or 3 = 5 to 6) and four prizes will be awarded per stage:

  • 1st prize – $200 gift voucher for art supplies
  • 2nd Prize – $100 gift voucher for art supplies
  • 3rd Prize – $50 gift voucher for art supplies
  • Highly Commended – art hamper.

An online registration form with all the guidelines for artwork and conditions of entry is available here.

All registrations must be completed online by the student’s parent or guardian.

Registrations close on Wednesday 28 June at 11:59 pm. No registrations will be accepted after this date. Please note artworks do not need to be submitted till Tuesday 25 July.

'Recycled Art' workshops are running during the July School Holidays at Hawkesbury’s Central Library and can help the students create their 'Waste 2 Art' entries. Click here for further details.
