The show was fundraising to support two scholarships for local students.

Important Details

Money was raised for two scholarships: SCAT Cats who recently placed 5th in the North American NFC Envirothon, and the Jan Thedford Scholarship, which is given to a High School graduate who intends to pursue a career in the Environmental Sciences.


There was a launch event on November 4th and a prize for the Recycled Art Best of Show which was presented at a closing event on November 15th, America Recycles Day. 

Anyone was able to submit recycled artwork for the event, and we even had submissions from Hot Springs High School which were located at The Center Gallery.
