Recycling Diorama

Recycling Diorama

Earth Day is April 22 and elementary school students can make a difference. Construct your diorama with recycled materials and be creative in designing a scene that illustrates the importance of recycling. Think of a scene, sketch some ideas, collect materials and build your diorama!

Dioramas must be created from items that could be found in a recycle bin. The scene should incorporate any aspect of recycling. Build your diorama using a shoebox or comparable item of reasonable size. Students may work and submit entries individually or together in groups. No copyrighted materials (music, images, etc.) may be used for this Contest unless you own the copyright or have a license to use the material for this contest. Written permission must be obtained and provided upon request for all copyrighted materials.

A Parent, Guardian or Teacher must submit the entry for a Child under the age of 13.

One winner will be selected by St. Louis Post-Dispatch Newspapers in Education. Entries will be judged on how the importance of recycling is portrayed and use of recycled materials. The judges’ decision is final.

Prizes include having your diorama photo in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (date TBD) and a $100 Target gift card.

The entries were awesome and the decision was difficult. But Addy's Floral Terrarium with Recycled Materials has been declared the winner. Addy thought outside the box and created a lovely scene.
