Details:To celebrate Earth Day, Roosevelt Park Zoo will be hosting a Recycle, Upcycle & Repurpose Contest in the hopes of raising awareness about environmental issues within our community and world. This contest is a fun way for students and families to explore recycling and upcycling methods in a creative way. We are featuring 3 separate contests: Recycle Robot, Repurposed Art & Upcycle Design. Rules, guidelines and instructions can be found online at http://www.rpzoo.com/recycling-contest/

Contact Categories:
- Recycle Robot: this category will consist of the design, build and operation of a robot made from recycled parts that will complete an action, which is chosen and described by the designer(s) of the robot.
- Repurposed Art: This category will consist of the design and creation of a work of art made from recycled parts. Definition of Repurposed: taking one thing and reusing it as something else.
- Upcycle Contest: This category will consist of the design and build of an object made from recycled parts that is an improvement over simply recycling the object or an improvement of the original use. For example, at the zoo old fire houses donated by the Minot Fire Department are turned into hammocks, swings, ropes, and feeding devices for animals at the zoo. Definition of upcycled: taking something and making it better. It’s the reuse of an item that may be used in a new way.

Important Dates:
- April 19th project entrees are due to the Roosevelt Park Zoo Visitor Center between 8:30am-4pm.
