Rubbish Sculpture Recycling Competition
Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council are holding a Rubbish Sculpture Recycling Competition for all primary school children.
Primary school children in the borough are invited to take part in the competition by creating a Rubbish Sculpture out of the recyclable items found in their recycling bin/box. It can be a robot, a rocket or even a dinosaur. There are so many creations waiting to be discovered!
The aim of the challenge is to make children more aware of the everyday things we throw away and to encourage them to think more about the importance of recycling and re-use.
The competition is only open to children who attend school in the Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough area.
Only one entry per child.
Sculptures must be made from at least two recyclable materials found in your recycling bin/box.
Sculptures must be 3D.
All materials used in the creation of your sculpture (apart from paint, tape, glue or fasteners used to hold it together) must be recycled from your recycling bin/box.
Entries must include the child’s, name, school, class and contact details and a paragraph explaining what your sculpture is and listing the main materials used.
It must also include a minimum of two photos but no more than four of your sculpture.
Sculptures must be photographed and entries must be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 9th June 2021.
Winners will be selected at random; all complete entries will be in with a chance of winning.
By submitting an entry to the competition, you are giving Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council permission to use the photos included on council social media channels.
Six lucky winners will receive an Amazon Fire 7 tablet. The prizes will be split into three categories –
P1 & P2, P3 & P4, P5, P6 &P7.
The competition closes on 9th June 2021.
Good Luck MPS pupils!

Gardens are a stronghold for hedgehogs and we can make their lives so much easier with very little effort!
There are many things we can all do to help hedgehogs. Here are just a few:
