Alcoa Recycled Art CANtest Winners Announced By PA Resources Council

The 1st Annual Alcoa Recycled Art CANtest winners have been announced by the PA Resources Council this week.

Students from all over Southwestern Pennsylvania created works of art to emphasis the importance of recycling – specifically aluminum cans!  Grades 1 through 8 were asked to create a poster that either encourages schools, communities, and/or the public to recycle--specifically aluminum cans or create a poster that shows the environmental benefits of recycling aluminum cans. 

High school students were tasked with creating sculptures out of aluminum cans.  We received a lot of great entries and our judges had a difficult time deciding on the winners.

Poster CANtest Winners:

-- 1st through 3rd grade - Lower Elementary, Alexis Wolfe – Pittsburgh Gifted Center

-- 4th through 5th grade - Upper Elementary, Katie Spallone - Norvelt Elementary

-- 6th through 8th grade -  Middle School, Jenna Moretti – South Brook Middle School

Recycled Art CANtest Sculpture Winner:

-- 9th through 12th grade - High School Tia Bradley – Valley High School

You can see the winning posters by visiting the PRC website.  Thank you to all who participated, students, teachers and, of course, the Alcoa Foundation for making the CANtest possible.
