Cultural Arts Special Project 2018

The special project for 2018 is a “recycled item”-taking a waste item and repurposing into a new item. An example would be to take an empty coffee container and repurpose into a bird house.

The item can be no larger than 12″ x 12″ x 12″.
Each county may enter one recycled item in the special project category. Attendees will be able to vote for their favorite item.
