Patriot Place eARTh Day 2023 Debunk Junk Art Contest for All Ages

In support of eARTh Day 2023, let’s put some of that unused “STUFF” that is currently cluttering your space to good use. And mix in some good condition trash “THINGS’ to design sustainable, useful, and enjoyable “CREATIONS”. As natural resources diminish, and society seeks to divert more waste from landfills, our Debunk Junk Art Contest challenges contest participants to design “STUFF” for reuse!
