Recycling Art Competition: Inspiring environmental sustainability and creativity in students

What happens when conservation and creativity meet? A kaleidoscope of colours and pure brilliance. That’s what we saw at this year’s Recycling Art Competition.

Recycling Art Competition started in 2015 as one of Resorts World Sentosa’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives to reinforce its commitment towards environmental sustainability.

Now in its second year, the competition received close to 170 entries from pre-schools, primary and secondary schools across Singapore, a threefold increase from 58 entries last year.

The themes for this year are:

  • Our Favourite Ocean Friends (pre-school category)
  • Protecting the Home of Our Ocean Friends (primary category)
  • Our Ocean – The Heart of Our Planet, Connecting All of Us Together (secondary category).

The submissions were pretty outstanding. Here are some of the finalists:
