City of Largo’s recycled innovations contest
Eco-Innovators and procrastinators have more time to submit their recycled creation to the City of Largo’s Recycled Innovations Contest. This online contest encourages innovators to make use-able items with the contents of their trash can.
All entries must be made of 75 percent or more recycled material or material that would otherwise be discarded. Contrary to a recycled art show, Recycled Innovations are items that may be reused in daily activities. Accepted entries will be functional items made of materials that can be diverted from the waste stream.
The City of Largo’s Recycled Innovation Show will give participants the opportunity to get their designs noticed across Tampa Bay and beyond. Innovators will be vying for innovative prizes such a solar/wind powered charges for cell phones, MP3 players and other electronics, environmental board games, and learning toys. Prizes will be awarded to the greatest innovators in various age categories:
- Tiny Innovators
- Junior Innovators
- Tween Innovators
- Techie Innovators
Deadline for entry including photo submission and entry description is Wednesday, October 28. Online voting begins November 1-12. Winners will be announced on America Recycles Day, November 15. Interested innovators can apply online at www.LargoRecycles.com or call 727.586.7424 for more information.
