Upcycle Competition Entry Deadline (5 pm)

June 26, 2020

Tap into your creativity and participate in our Upcycle Competition. The contest runs June 15 – 26 and is open to all ages.

Upcycling is taking something old or unused – such as furniture, objects or material – and constructing a new usable, higher-quality product. For example, turn a ladder into a bookshelf or an old armoire into a wine cabinet. The Internet is a treasure trove of more upcycling examples.

Directions for those who wish to enter are:
Step 1: Find that something needing repurposed.
Step 2: Create!
Step 3: Take photos of your masterpiece.
Step 4: Email photos by 5 p.m., Friday, June 26 to karyl@hbaofic.org. Include your first name, age and city. Images will be used on social media.

Judges are representatives from HBA-member Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity (IVHFH) ReStore, and winners will be announced the week of June 29. Prizes, courtesy of Locals Love Us – ICR, are:

1st Place: $50 Gift Certificate to IVHFH ReStore, $50 to Herteen & Stocker Jewelers and $25 to Every Bloomin’ Thing.
2nd Place: $25 Gift Certificate to IVHFH ReStore and $50 to Midtown Family Restaurant and $15 to Woofables Gourmet Dog Bakery.
3rd Place: $25 Gift Certificate to IVHFH ReStore, $20 to We Run and $15 to Woofables Gourmet Dog Bakery.

Have fun!
