Art of the green kind will be on display at 2019 Portneuf Valley Environmental Fair.
Right now, organizers are looking for submissions for the recycled sculpture, poetry, and “Trashi Fashi” fashion show contests. The recycled sculpture contest asks sculptors to create their piece of art using locally sourced and recycled materials around the theme “Upcycling our Future.” Meanwhile, in the poetry competition, kindergarten through 12th-grade students are asked to write and illustrate a 40-word poem on the theme “Take Note: The Chemistry of Paper.” And for the “Trashi Fashi” fashion show, designers are being asked to design and model a clothing item or accessory out of recycled items.
“The contests are a unique way to engage your creative side while helping the environment through upcycling art,” said Rachael Shearouse, Education Curator at Zoo Idaho and one of the organizers of the Portneuf Valley Environmental Fair. “All three contests let artists highlight unique ways to reduce waste and have a chance to win a cash prize.”
The top entries in each contest will be announced at the 2019 Portneuf Valley Environmental Fair that will be held Saturday, April 20 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Caldwell Park.
The deadline to register for the “Trashi Fashi” fashion show is April 1. Entries for the poetry contest are due by April 12. The last day to register for the recycled sculpture contest is April 19.
