'It Pays to Re-use' contest under way at Hancock center

May 23, 2008

HANCOCK - The Tri-State Reuse Center is staging its eighth annual "It Pays to Re-use" contest. The contest will reward people creating innovative projects using reused or surplus materials.

Prizes are $200 for first place, $100 for second place and $50 for third place.

The Tri-State Reuse Center is a nonprofit building supply warehouse at 225 W. Main St. The center collects, repairs, and redistributes salvaged materials.

In the spirit of creating a better environment, the Reuse Center hopes to encourage creative reuse of salvaged manufactured goods, such as carpet, counter tops, doors, paint, kitchen fixtures and ceramic tile.

To enter, submit a photo of your project which uses more than 51-percent reused or recycled materials. Include a short essay on how the project was developed, designed and created. Write your name, address, phone and project name on the back of the photo.

Photos will not be returned; they become the property of the Reuse Center. Contestants agree to have their projects published.

All entries must be postmarked or dropped off at the office during business hours on or before Thursday, July 17. Judges' decisions will be announced on Thursday, July 24.

For information, call 301-678-6160 or e-mail homefire2@earthlink.net.
