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

Woodridge Patch and Lemont Patch are challenging readers to make art out of recycled materials.

The Degas of detergent containers? The Cezanne of cardboard? The Dali of the toilet paper roll? If you can find inspiration in refuse, then you could win our Recyclable Art Contest in honor of Earth Day.

Readers of Lemont Patch and Woodridge Patch are invited to enter into a 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 from:

  • Cardboard
  • Plastic container of liquid
  • Laundry detergent
  • Old CDs
  • Toliet paper rolls
  • Cans (pop, soup cans, etc.)

Lemont Patch Local Editor Amanda Luevano and Woodridge Patch Local Editor Melissa Tussing will judge the entries based on these criteria:

  • Creativity
  • Use of the recycled materials
  • Quality 

Bonus points will be given if the submission incorporates some aspect of the artist's hometown and/or their local Patch site!

Take a photo of your work of art and send it to Amanda at amanda@patch.com or Melissa at melissat@patch.com. Good luck! We can't wait to see your work.
