I was very excited to be asked and was blown away but the exhibits at our local museum. This museum is located in our local mall and it was my 1st time there since it opened.
Here are some photos I took before the contestants arrived with their parents.
Live plants growing in PVC
Jeans as insulation...wow I thought I had some denim recycling ideas
Examples of how long things take to decompose and will sit in landfills
This is one of my favorites...just because
ABC's of going GREEN
All of the kids who participated were talented and their projects were amazing. However the other 2 judges and I could only select 3 winners. Winners were picked on the creativity and most use of recycled items.
HERE ARE THE WINNERS
1st Prize - Chris Negron from Woodbridge High School
His project was the Tree of Life...his verbal description of his project and inspiration was amazing and he put alot of thought into it and it is truly a wonderful example of recycled art.
2nd Prize - The Avenel Middle School Art Class (a group of approximately 8+ students) who came up this fantastic guy Ernie the Earth Guy. They collected trash from their own school and put together this fabulous specimen.
3rd prize went to a lovely young lady named Juliana but she was gone before I could get her photo. She made the Cherrios Ballerina on the back left. She used a lot of recycled materials and had a lot of detail.
I was so honored to be apart of this contest, and amazed by the talent of these children and their knowledge and passion for going GREEN.
Thanks to the Greenable Museum, Mayor McCormac, Kelly Reidy, Caroline Ehrlich for inviting to be apart of this special event in our wonderful GREEN town.
