Shalimar ES Wins District’s Bottle Cap Art Competition

Earth Day – Recycle – Repurpose – Revive

Bottle caps, one of the most frequently found forms of trash in the ocean and on beaches, create a special recycling problem.  While most bottle caps are made from recyclable materials, their size makes them difficult to recycle.  

For Earth Day 2017, students were asked to participate in a district-wide Bottle Cap Art Competition.  Students collected a variety of bottle caps in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Then either as a group or individually, the students created their works of art.  The art was judged on craftsmanship, balance and use of space, color use and time and effort that went into the planning and creation of the work.
