The Town of Wilton and the Zero Waste Schools Committee is sponsoring a poster contest for students in grades K-12. Posters will be judged by First Selectwoman Lynne Vanderslice, Wilton Go Green, and the Zero Waste Schools Committee.
One winner will be chosen from each of the following groups: K-2nd, 3rd-5th, 6th-8th, and 9th-12th. Winners will receive a Wilton Chamber of Commerce gift certificate and have their artwork displayed at Wilton Town Hall.
Students are asked to design posters around the theme of “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” with artwork demonstrating the right ways to deal with recyclable materials such as reducing single use plastics, reusing containers, or properly recycling materials based on the Town’s recycling program. Participants are encouraged to check out Recycle CT’s “What’s In, What’s Out” program for project inspiration. Posters can be as small as 8” x 11” and as large as 24” x 36”. Students may use a variety of media such as pen and ink, crayon, colored pencil, marker, or paints. 3D projects and other creative ideas will be accepted.
