The Prince William Public Library System recognizes the winner of the Library Category for the Recycled Art Contest. Jonathan Huff, a 15 year old student at Hylton High School, receives a Kindle Fire from Library Director Connie Gilman for his submission of a Cardboard Bust. Public, private and home-schooled students participated in the 2014 Recycled Art Contest.
“We are so proud of this young man’s creativity, originality, and use of recycled materials, said Dr. Gilman. We were honored to have an opportunity to vote and select a winner for this contest.”
Katie Argueta, whose art was titled “Nurture” (bird and nest) and Emily Krupp, whose art was titled, “Cardboard Sculpture Fish” received honorable mentions from the Library System for their art. Katie and Emily are also students at Hylton High School.
The Recycled Art contest is an annual contest held by Prince William County to promote recycling of plastic bottles, glass, Styrofoam, scrap metal, yogurt tubs, plastic bags, aluminum cans, egg cartons, fabric, CD cases, CDs, bottle caps, books, foil and leftover paint, and newspaper.
