Craig businesses look for entries in Upcycle Contest
One person’s trash is another’s item with a whole new purpose.
The judging for the Upcycle Contest, sponsored by Craig’s Downtown Business Association, will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in Alice Pleasant Park. Organizers still are seeking entries for this event, for which the only rule is to take a used item and refashion it as something else.
For example, a previous contest featured a drum turned into a coffee table.
The contest is $5 per entry, and judges will offer multiple age groups complete with prizes.
For more information, visit the Community Budget Center or Favorite Things, or call 970-824-5833.
A young Florida woman who traveled to Colorado and bought a shotgun for what authorities feared would be a Columbine-inspired attack just days ahead of the 20th anniversary was found dead Wednesday in an apparent suicide after a nearly 24-hour manhunt.
