Announcing the RecycleMania Art Competition

As part of RecycleMania, the Office of Sustainability will be hosting an art competition. We will be assembling four different teams to take part. Each team will be given a used 90 gallon tote (a container used to collect recyclable materials) to decorate using paint and other materials. The team with the best decorated tote, as determined by our judges, will be rewarded with a prize of RecycleMania swag. However, all participants will receive the joy of participating and helping the environment. In addition, the four totes will be showcased in the East Campus Residence Halls, and even used to collect UIC recyclables.

This competition is a wonderful way to demonstrate students’ creativity, as well as their passion for recycling. All materials will be provided for the teams by the Office of Sustainability and Housing. Please join us to encourage art and recycling.

Students can sign up as individuals looking to be placed on teams, or as pre-formed teams. The teams will be finalized and announced this Friday, March 16th.  Sign up is on a first come first serve basis.  To sign up, please contact Amanda Scott-Born at amandasb@uic.edu.

Thank you for your continued support for the Office of Sustainability and RecycleMania.
