The City of Norfolk Waste Management, Keep Norfolk Beautiful and EnviroPerks will facilitate a children’s creative challenge from August 5th, 2016 to January 8th, 2017, where children will be challenged to produce artwork encouraging Norfolk residents to recycle and live greener.

Available Prizes:

  • Children with winning entries will receive prizes, such as Amazon tablets and Beats headphones; three children winners total (1 per school level: elementary, middle school and high school). See details on page 2.
  • Three teachers who encourage the most submissions, will be awarded a $50 gift card or equivalent.

Who Can Participate:

Any child between the ages of 4 to 18, residing in Norfolk can participate. The children’s families don’t need to be EnviroPerks users.

How Much It Costs:

Nothing. Participation is free.

How To Participate:

Children will use their favorite creative outlet (example: painting, photographs, drawings, video, crafts, recycled materials, article, poem, etc.) to encourage Norfolk to be greener and/or to recycle. An example could be to illustrate the following sentence “Recycle for the future” or “Recycle for Norfolk”. Another example could be to illustrate the “3 Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”.

Deadline:

January 8th 2017 at midnight.

Children send a digital version or a photo of their artwork per email to info@enviroperks.com before January 8th 2017, along with the submission agreement, which must be signed by their parents. If the project has been encouraged by a teacher, the teacher’s name should be added onto the submission form.
