RECYCLED SCULPTURE CONTEST Portledge School and the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary & Audubon Center are proud to co-sponsor the Second Create Something GreatSM Recycled Sculpture Contest. We are encouraging students in pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade to build sculptures made out of recycled and/or reusable materials designed around the theme of nocturnal animals, such as bats, fireflies, raccoons, owls, skunks, and tarantulas. This contest is a hands-on learning experience for budding young artists to pique their curiosity about art, wildlife and environmental issues. Children compete in three categories: Pre-Kindergarten – First grade; Second – Third grades; and Fourth – Sixth grades. Awards will be given within each assigned age category based on overall aesthetic value and creative use of recycled materials. Prizes for each category include: first place $100 gift certificate for arts & crafts supplies, second place $50 gift certificate for arts & crafts supplies, and third place $25 gift certificate for arts & crafts supplies.
