Council Announces Garbage Truck Art Competition Winner
05 Oct 2020
Council would like to congratule Alyssia Sky, age 9 of George Town for her outstanding and winning artwork. Her entry was unsurpassed and ticked all the criteria boxes.
In July, Council launched the Garbage Truck Art Competition through its Kids Activity Portal to find a young person with a creative flair, perhaps a budding artist or graphic designer or someone who was passionate about a waste free community (who was 21 years of age or under) to come up with a unique design that addressed “What does a waste free Tasmania looked like?”
Council would like to thank those who entered the Garbage Truck Competition. There was a variation in ideas and their adaptation. After some deliberation our winner Alyssia Sky was selected and notified.
The artwork was adapted for installation and placed on both sides of the truck, the results are amazing.
The Deputy Major Tim Harris and Council's Waste Department representatives Glen Johnston and Brett Willis where at the presentation to congratulate Alyssia on her design. Council's General Manager Shane Power presented the first prize a $500 Why Leave Town Card and inspire Alyssia to strike a pose!
