The City of Tucson Environmental Services Department is sponsoring the ‘Look What's New With Do More Blue’ Poster Contest. Tucson students in grades 6-8 are invited to create a poster that effectively and clearly highlights the importance of recycling in the City of Tucson. This contest is an opportunity for students to creatively express their understanding of recycling and waste reduction in our community and to spread that message to the residents of Tucson. The contest winner will have their artwork enlarged and displayed on the sides of Tucson’s collection trucks. All 6th-8th grade students in City of Tucson public, private and charter schools (including home schooled students) are eligible.
Posters should clearly highlight the importance of recycling in the City of Tucson. This theme can include topics such as “reduce, reuse, recycle,” using the Blue Barrel, “Do More Blue,” and materials accepted at the new Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). A complete information packet is available at www.outreach-scheduling.org/recyclingpostercontest. The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2014.
