Primary school students enrolled in schools in the region can participate and must present objects made with recycled materials
The Vega Baja Sustainable Consortium has launched the first children’s contest ‘Recycled Talent’ with the aim of raising awareness among children about recycling. In the contest, primary school students enrolled in schools of the region can participate and must present objects made with recycled materials.
The contest consists of the realization of a project, individually, from recycled materials. The work must be original and unpublished, hand-made by the scholar, reusing materials such as newspapers, glass or plastic containers, fabrics, plugs, cans or laces.
This list is merely indicative, since the project is only limited by the imagination of the creator as long as it is made from reused materials.
The contest will be underway from February 15 to March 31, 2019 and participants agree to fully accept the legal bases of it. The contest consists of three important prizes: the first classified will obtain a stay in the Terra Mítica park in Benidorm with overnight accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis for two adults and two children; the second classified will get a gift card of 125 euros for sports equipment and the third classified a bluetooth speaker valued at 70 euros.
Enrollment in the contest will be done online through the consortium page: www.consorciovegabajasostenible.com/concurso-recycled-talent, attaching the project through photographs, with a minimum of three and a maximum of five images, through of a form enabled on the web page.
The name of the winners will be published on the Consortium’s website (www.consorciovegabajasostenible.com) within 15 calendar days after the deadline for submission of projects, and the awards ceremony will take place during the first half of May in a public act in a population of the Vega Baja not yet determined.
The president of the Vega Baja Sustainable Consortium, Manuel Pineda, has assured that from the entity “we are going to carry out a series of actions that promote and improve the recycling figures in our region”. In this sense Pineda has explained that “one of the fundamental issues in waste management is awareness and awareness, from the smallest to adults, so that we learn to recycle properly so that in the future we are able to achieve the objectives that are marking us from the European Union.
The children’s contest on recycling is part of the actions that the Consortium is launching as the purchase of almost 300 composters to distribute among the municipalities of the Vega Baja. All with the aim of increasing the percentage of recycling.
