creative in building a sculpture made of garbage (non-recyclable material). Team
and individual projects are welcome in the following categories: Grades Pre-K-2,
Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8 and Grades 9-12. Projects must be able to withstand the
elements as they are showcased in an outdoor display on the Essex County
Environmental Center during the week of Earth Day! Grand prizes are awarded to
entries that place 1st in all categories; 2nd and 3rd place entries will be
recognized with a plaque, certificate and a small gift from the Environmental
Center. Pre-registration is required; call 973.228.8776 or email
