The old adage of “One person’s trash is another’s treasure” has never been more accurate and now you might win an iPad Mini 3 to boot.

Be a creative, turn your trash and litter into a “Trashter Piece.” Take everyday trash and litter such as plastic bottles, potato chip bags, pieces of metal, rubber tires, food cans, boots, plates, aluminum and make them into a memorable piece of art. Items like animal parts and food by-products and/or animal parts cannot be used.

Name your Trashter Piece. For example, if you are using fishing lines and old hooks found on the shoreline, “Hook, Line & Sinker” might be appropriate. If you found lots of cigarette butts, “No Butts About It” could be the title. Random pieces of metal might lead to “Hot & Bothered.” Think outside the box for an eye-catching title.

The art category is “Wildlife Inspired.” There are three categories for art submission: grades K – 6, grades 7 – 12, and adults.

The entry deadline is Dec. 31 with the art selection conducted during February 2016. All prizes will be awarded on March 18 at 6 p.m. at the Palmetto Sportsman Classic at the State Fairgrounds in Columbia.
