Two Carroll County high school students won awards in this year’s Rethink Recycling Sculpture Contest sponsored by the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE).

Mary Garrison from South Carroll High School was the grand prize winner for her sculpture “Golden Mare”, which was made using gold metal objects, necklaces, cardboard, wire, and a drawer handle. A sculpture by Adrianna Wood from Century High School, which was made from screws, won the People’s Choice Award.

MDE has celebrated America Recycles Day by hosting the Annual “Rethink Recycling” Sculpture Contest since 2001. The contest challenges Maryland high school students to use recycled materials to create artistic and innovative sculptures. This year, 62 entries from 23 schools across the state were on display.
