If You're the Rembrandt of Recycling, You Could Win 2 Tickets to Great America!

If you can find inspiration in refuse, then you could win our Recyclable Art Contest in honor of Earth Day.

Might you be the Degas of detergent containers? The Cezanne of cardboard? The Dali of the toilet paper roll?

Do you know someone who can make art out of garbage?

Then you could win our Recyclable Art contest.

If you couldn't tell, Patch kind of likes being green. Yes, we love the color (hence the new background).

We thought it rather fitting, then, to celebrate Earth Day with a contest.

Readers of Orland Park Patch, Tinley Park Patch and Oak Lawn Patch are invited to enter our recycled art contest. Make a piece of art out of five common recycled materials. If your piece of art is judged to be the winner, you'll win two tickets to Great America in Gurnee.

The deadline for the contest is Friday, April 22.

Here are the five items you can choose:

  • Cardboard
  • Plastic container of liquid Laundry Detergent
  • CDs
  • Toliet paper rolls
  • Cans (pop, soup cans, ect)

Entries will be judged based on these criteria:

  • Creativity
  • Use of the recycled materials
  • Quality 

Take a photo of your work of art and send it to contest@chicago-patch.com. Or upload your photo to this story. Good luck! We can't wait to see your work.
