3Rs Art Contest Logo

The City of Tampa’s Department of Solid Waste and Environmental Program Management needs your help in selecting the 2018 3Rs’ Art Contest Winner.  The 13th annual 3Rs’ Art Contest is designed to engage the City of Tampa’s youth in recycling while conveying a recycling and waste reduction message.  The first place winning art design for each grade level, along with the artist’s first name and school will be displayed on a City of Tampa recycling truck for one year.

A total of 108 students representing grade levels 4th through 12th from 4 local schools and 2 after school programs participated in the contest.  Students learn from our Recycling staff the benefits of recycling and recycling trends, such as recycling contamination and what can and cannot be recycled.  The contest, another educational outreach effort of the Department, focuses on the importance of recycling right

Contest votes will be accepted from Feb 7 through March 4, 2019.
