    Repair & Reuse: Student Recycle Art Calendar Awardees Announced

    Posted by: Public Works - Environmental Services

    Fourteen students from Marion County will be honored at the Marion County Board of Commissioners meeting on Wednesday, December 13, 2017, and their artwork will be published in the Student Recycle Art Calendar. In an effort to promote waste reduction and resource conservation in local schools, Marion County Public Works - Environmental Services  and Mid-Valley Garbage & Recycling Association teamed up to create this year's Student Recycle Art Calendar contest.

    Beginning in spring, students throughout Marion County began submitting illustrations that addressed this year's theme "Repair & Reuse." Students were encouraged to think of ways in which they can help repair and reuse common household or school items.

    The committee selected the winners based not only on their artistic ability, but also on the content of their message. Fourteen students in several grade categories will be awarded gift cards along with fabulous art sets. Students with winning entries will also receive certificates that will be presented to them by the board of commissioners. The 2017 art calendar award winners are:

    Student Name School
    Annabelle Hill Salem Academy
    Zan Saeed Schirle Elementary
    Lizzie Stravens Scotts Mills
    Hanna Cruzen Career Technical Education Center
    Brennea Atchley Wright Elementary
    Isabella Cruz Martinez Hallman Elementary
    Aniya Kindred Scotts Mills Middle School
    Kiarah Bryant French Prairie Middle School
    Jenean Randall Sprague High School
    Juliette Vold Sprague High School
    Nevaeh Meza Rojas Washington Elementary
    Inessa Garrey South Salem HS
    Alexis Reeves Howard Street Charter School
    Savannah Schaefer-Barnwell Sprague High School

    This year we will also recognize Sprague High School's art teacher, Connie Toland. One of her students will be awarded the grand prize and their artwork will be featured on the cover page of the calendar. We realize that teachers play a critical role in making this contest a big success and we want to also recognize their hard work.

    Calendars are free and available by visiting Marion County Public Works at 5155 Silverton Road NE, Salem, Oregon or by calling 503-566-4159, or by calling Mid-Valley Garbage & Recycling Association at 503-390-4000.
