    TRASHFORMATION: A TRASH-TO-TREASURE ART CONTEST

    Party_for_the_Planet

    The Louisville Zoo and the LG&E and KU Foundation invite students in preschool through 12th grade to participate in our ninth annual recycled art contest as part of Party for the Planet: A Month-Long Celebration of the Earth powered by the LG&E and KU Foundation. This unique event encourages students to communicate the importance of recycling and sustainability through art. Using only recycled items, students will make an art project that reflects, interprets or depicts Reuse, Reduce, Recycle.

    We are once again partnering with the Louisville Orchestra’s MakingMUSIC Landfill Orchestra program. We encourage students to create a musical instrument out of recycled materials. The Louisville Orchestra has some ideas for musical instruments on their website at LouisvilleOrchestra.org/landfill-orchestra.

    You must register online at LouisvilleZoo.org/trashformation/registration by February 22, 2021 to participate.

    Your entry must be submitted online at LouisvilleZoo.org/Trashformation-submission by March 27, 2021.
