Trash to Treasures Contest

The Annual Trash to Treasures repurposing contest is open to Honolulu CC students, faculty, staff and administrators. Participants work towards reducing needless waste by creating something of practical utility or aesthetic value from items that would otherwise enter the waste stream. Submissions are displayed live during the joint Hoʻolauleʻa/Sustainability Showcase in April each year. Prizes for the top three selections in separate student, and faculty/staff/administrator categories are awarded based on attendant votes. Participants need to submit the Trash to Treasures form to the Sustainability Committee. Deadlines and contacts vary from year. For 2020 the form needs to be submitted to John DeLay delay@hawaii.edu by April 17th. The finished project needs to be brought to Cynthia Smith smithcyn@hawaii.edu by April 20th.
