2021 Spokane County Recycles Poster Contest

“Spokane Recycles” – 2021 Poster Contest Rules:

Posters must be letter-size (8 1/2 x 11) and drawn horizontally. You may use marker, crayon, colored pencil; no 3-D collages please. The student’s name must not appear on front of poster. Other rules and a registration form can be found here or by calling 509-625-6580. For additional information on recycling in Spokane, visit the City of Spokane’s website or contact the City of Spokane’s Solid Waste Disposal Department at 625-6580.

Primary considerations for judging are, in priority:

  • Use of theme “Recycle for the Future!”
  • Originality
  • Artistic ability – attractive and grade appropriate (Tip: make any text large enough to be legible at a distance.)

Posters must be received by 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 8, at Spokane’s Waste to Energy facility, 2900 S. Geiger Blvd., Spokane WA 99224. (If hand delivering, go to the administration building and leave with the receptionist.)

Up to 30 finalists will be selected for public display the month of November. Finalists will also receive special recognition by County officials and solid waste professionals in November as part of the America Recycles Day celebration.

Fifteen (15) posters will be selected from the finalists to illustrate the 2022 Spokane Recycles Calendar. Students may enter individually or as part of a class.

Entrants must be in grades K-8 and either reside or attend school in Spokane County. Complete a signed release form and attach it to the back of the completed poster with small pieces of tape – no glue, staples or paper clips. Do not fold poster.
