The ReUse People reduces the solid waste stream and changes the way the built environment is renewed by salvaging building materials and distributing them for reuse.
2015 National Reuse Contest Enters Final Month
Attention all artists, furniture makers, DIY remodelers and builders of greenhouses, tool sheds, chickens coops, container houses and other habitats, whole or partial! We have reached the homestretch of the 2015 National Reuse Contest. To compete in this year's contest, entries must be received at local participating stores by midnight Saturday, October 31.
A reminder: Once again this year, entries are being accepted in two categories: construction and art/furniture. When submitting your entry at a participating store, be sure to specify the entry category. You may enter a different project in each category, but you may not enter a single project in both categories.
Your participating store will select first, second and third-place winners in each category and send them to TRP no later than November 30. In December, TRP's panel of judges will review and assess the entire field of local winners and select the first, second and third-place national winners in both construction and art/furniture.
Winner, 2014 Remodeling and Construction
National winners will be announced in early January.
For further information and answers to last minute questions, please contact Kelly Simione, Program Manager, National Reuse Contest: KellySimione@TheReUsePeople.org, or by phone at 909.684.9833.
Hurry! Don't miss this opportunity to showcase your work and win great prizes!
