First Lady Katie O’Malley awarded prizes on Friday, November Thirteenth at the eighth annual “Rethink Recycling” Sculpture Contest, hosted by the Maryland Department of the Environment.
The sculpture contest challenges Maryland high school students to use recycled materials in artistic and innovative creations. Over fifty entries from nineteen different high schools across the state were on display and contained everything from VCR tapes, bottle caps, lawnmower wheels, cans, paper, and cigarette butts.
Congratulations to MHS’s Catherine Traini who won for “Workmanship”, with her peacock made from cans, wire, and bottle caps.
