Stash Your Trash Crab Art Contest

Last fall, the City of Salisbury and Wicomico County’s “Stash Your Trash” program challenged area residents to try their hands at making heron sculptures out of recycled materials. The response was terrific and today we have a flock of 13 herons that travel around the community promoting “Stash Your Trash”. Perhaps you have seen them at the Library, Ward Museum, Tourism Center or Airport!

This year the community’s anti-litter campaign Stash Your Trash, sponsored by Chesapeake Tours and Promotions, Inc. in partnership with Salisbury University’s Environmental Studies Department and the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce, is issuing another challenge:

Create a crab!

We are encouraging youth to “Be Crabby” and join in the excitement of creating their own version of a Chesapeake Bay crab. Last year Chipman Elementary, Girl Scout Troop 385, WISE~WiMiddle after-school program and home-schoolers all participated with fabulous entries that are now part of the traveling flock throughout the area. For this year’s contest, this is all you have to do:

1) Create a crab out of recycled materials

2) Recommended size is 1-2 feet wide by 1-2 feet long (table top size)

3) Frames are available on first come first serve basis (picture of frame attached)

4) Bring your completed entry to the October 3rd Friday for display and judging by the community. The date is Friday, October 16th on Salisbury’s Downtown Plaza.

Call or email today to sign up and “Be Crabby” with your kidz!
