Calling all clever ReUsers!
If you've found an ingenious way to reuse building material, your project could earn you a prize worth $1,000 and dinner with a representative from The ReUse People.
Stores in Ballard, Bellingham, Seattle and Tacoma are part of the 2017 National Reuse Contest and welcome entries in two categories: Construction/Remodeling and Art/Furniture.
Entries may be submitted until Oct. 31, with local winners announced by Nov. 30. National winners will be selected no later than Jan. 15, 2018.
Each entry must be accompanied by an official entry form.
Each participating store will hold its own contest and all store winners will be entered automatically in the national contest. TRP then selects national first, second, and third place in each category. Winners will receive gift cards for discount coupons redeemable for merchandise at their sponsoring stores. Prizes are valued at $1,000, $500 and $250 for first, second and third place, respectively.
