WASHINGTON—For the fourth consecutive year, the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries and Jason Learning are seeking entries from young filmmakers, artists and recycling advocates for their 2017 Recycling Video and Poster Contest.
The contest is open to all students living in the U.S. and enrolled in grades K-12 during the 2016-17 school year, ISRI and Jason Learning said in a press release.
Young artists are invited to create original posters highlighting ISRI's roles as “the Voice of the Recycling Industry,” according to the release. Young filmmakers may choose between creating a video demonstrating the challenges of recycling their chosen “Bigger than the Bin” items and interviewing an ISRI-member recycling professional about their work and career path, it said.
Top entries will be used to help educate the public on ISRI's mission, how large items are recycled and careers in the recycling industry, the release said. ISRI is accepting poster entries in the K-4, 5-8 and 9-12 grade categories and videos in the 5-8 and 9-12 categories, it said.
Jan. 20, 2017 is the deadline for entries in the contest, ISRI said. The grand prize winners in each category will win all-expenses-paid trips to New Orleans for the ISRI 2017 Convention and Exposition. Finalists will receive t-shirts, certificates and a year of Jason online access, as well as having their work featured on the Jason and ISRI websites.
