Calling all creatives! It’s time to plan your entries for the Re-Think Art Competition & Exhibition at the 2018 Northwest Indiana Earth Day Celebration.

Categories include: young adult, adult and youth. Works will ultimately be displayed at the Northwest Indiana Earth Day Celebration on April 21 for a popular vote.

“Materials that can be used include anything reclaimed, reused, recovered, second-hand, salvaged, or anything un-new.” said Therese Haller, competition and exhibition committee chair.
