Port Royal Sound Foundation

 

Recycled Art Contest

Presented by the Port Royal Sound Foundation
To help bring awareness to Beaufort County’s plastic bag ban and keep the water and land of the Port Royal Sound Area clean and healthy.

Artists are invited to participate in the first annual Recycled Art Contest.  The theme for all artwork should relate to the Port Royal Sound – think ocean, animals, beaches, local culture & history, and fun in the sun!  Entries must be made from at least 80% recyclables or trash material. $3500 in prize money will be awarded in several categories.

Individuals, clubs, schools, families, businesses are all encouraged to participate.  Maybe a life-size sculpture of a Loggerhead Turtle? Or your own version of a seagrass basket – use your imagination to help us bring awareness to keeping our community and the Port Royal Sound Area clean!
