Safe Planet contest: Plastic Pollution Solutions

February 16th, 2012


Students in grades K-12, here's your chance to make the world a better place!

195_poster_hawaii2012Safe Planet, in partnership with the Hawaii Department of Education, Malama Hawaii and other partners, is launching a new art contest focusing on Plastic Pollution Solutions.

Students are to pick one, single-use plastic item in their homes and to re-design it in an eco-friendly, organic and non-polluting material. They must explain what it looks like, how it is made  and how it is used through a photograph, painting, drawing, graphic or sculpture.

The contest is sponsored by the UN Safe Planet campaign. It starts today, with a submissions deadline of May 18.

Prizes will be awarded in three age group categories: Grades K-3, Grades 4-7, and Grades 8-12.

Winning designs will be exhibited at a local gallery in Honolulu as well as the Galerie Califia in Europe during the summer. Winning designs will also be sent to local manufacturers who will create prototypes of the eco-friendly products. The top winning design will be exhibited at the Safe Planet Exhibition in Rio de Janeiro during the Rio + 20 Earth Summit in June.
