Students participate in Miami County’s Recycled Ornament Contest

Students from across the county again participated in this year’s recycled ornament contest, sponsored by the Miami County Solid Waste District.

The annual contest asks students to create Christmas ornaments using recyclable materials. The contest is judged on creativity, reuse of materials, and recycle-ability of materials.

This year, students from five schools in grades in grades K-8 submitted ornaments, sending in a tree made from upcycled plastic forks, some amazing origami work, a tree constructed from paper towel tubes, and snowmen made of cans, bottles and bottle caps.

The winners are as follows:
