York student competition recycles waste into art
YORK, Pa. (WHTM) — One man’s trash is another man’s art… or so the entrants to the York County Solid Waste Authority’s Recycled Art Contest demonstrate. To promote recycling and celebrate Earth Day, YCSWA is holding a competition for high school students, inviting them to recycle trash into works of art.
Students create projects from recycled, salvaged and found materials, and the projects will be on display at the Museum of Agriculture and Industry in York from April 16-23.

The Recycled Art Contest Prize Reception will take place on April 21 at 6:30 p.m. Each winning student receives an art supply gift certificate, and their school’s art departments also receive an art supply gift certificate of the same amount.
