Recycled Material Art Contest

Submitted by George Ruetenik, Lansing Resident

My idea is to…

“…[have] a recycled materials art contest outdoors near Lansing City Market, during a time frame leading up to Earth Day. All entries made from mostly recycled materials.  Contestants would donate their art projects. Popular vote by people visiting the displays would determine the winners. Winners would receive cash prizes. Other participants would receive certificates or coupons for downtown businesses. The art works would be auctioned off after the contest, with the money used for future prizes in this annual event.”

My idea contributes to a vibrant community by…

“It would make people more aware of recycling and could be used to advertise other Earth Day/recycling projects going on. It would also bring people downtown to see the displays.  “
