The America Recycles Day RETHINK Contest

Got creativity? Throughout the month of October, the Midlands Recycling and Sustainability Alliance will host its annual America Recycles RETHINK Contest for K-12 students in Lexington and Richland counties. Participating schools can submit up to six entries for the contest, to be held on Saturday, November 18, from 9 to 11 a.m. at EdVenture Museum, located at 211 Gervais Street, in Columbia.

Students are asked to create bats, bat art or bat games made from used and upcycled materials after researching how local bat species benefit the midlands. Entries should include a digital picture and a paragraph (written by the student(s)) describing how the individual or group project was created and what was learned from the necessary research. The name and grade level of the student(s) should be included. Cash prizes will be awarded!
