We had some fantastic entries this year - everyone deserves a great round of applause for their artwork submitted to the contest!
While Allen Recycles Day was taking place in City Hall’s parking lot on Saturday, November 2, there was also a celebration inside the Council Chambers for Recycled Art Contest Award winners. The Recycled Art Contest is sponsored every year for AISD students by Keep Allen Beautiful (KAB). Twenty-seven winners received awards from Mayor Stephen Terrell and Councilmember Robin Sedlacek, as well as KAB Board members Mark Schallhorn, Cheryl Baez, and Susan Ponder.
