Largo Seeks Eco-Innovators for Recycled Innovations Contest
LARGO - Eco-Innovators are those who think outside of the can to create treasure out of trash. The City of Largo's Recycled Innovations Contest encourages innovators to make a useable creation for photo submission in their online event.
All entries must be made of 75 percent or more recycled or material that would otherwise be discarded. Contrary to a recycled art show, Recycled Innovations are items that may be reused in daily activities. Accepted entries will be functional items made of materials that can be diverted from the waste stream.
The City of Largo's Recycled Innovation Show will give participants the opportunity to get their designs noticed across Tampa Bay and beyond. Innovative prizes will be awarded to the greatest innovators in various age categories: Tiny Innovators, Junior Innovators, Tween Innovators, Techie Innovators, and Macgyvers.
Deadline for entry including photo submission and entry description is Saturday, October 10. Online voting begins on October 15-November 12. The winners will be announced on America Recycles Day, November 15. Interested innovators can apply online at www.LargoRecycles.com or call 727-586-7424.
