Student members of God's World PRIDE Club at Campbellsville Child Development Center discovered creative possibilities for trash during spring break.

The children were asked, "What can you make out of trash?" Their answers ranged from cars towing trailers to jewelry boxes to bears.

Students in kindergarten through fourth grade used boxes, cans, plastic bottles - anything that could be joined with duct tape - and created art from their imaginations. There was no limit on the number of items they could enter in the show. Some spent an entire day on one project while others worked to make as many as possible.

Parents, teachers and preschoolers at the center viewed the art show on Tuesday, April 1 and voted on their favorites. Award winners were:

Andrea Caulk, recycled paper sculpture; Hope Brockman, recycled paper collage; Bailey Marlow, best musical instrument (drums); Jackson Herron, best variety of entries; Dawson Cole, most awesome ride; Jeremiah Jackson, tie for fourth and cool cars award; Rylee Vaughn, tie for fourth and most creative boxes; Alex Tungate, tie for third and most creative auto; BreAnna Marlow, most creative animal (bear); Haley Fisher, tie for third and best cartoon character (SpongeBob); Austin Malone, tie for second and most entries; Tyler Stephens, tie for second and biggest entry; Clay Barnett, tie for second and best add-ons; and Shelbi Lemmon, first place (giraffe).

God's World PRIDE Club meets monthly at Campbellsville Child Development Center to actively involve members in working to preserved God's world by participating in clean-up projects, recycling and investigating the environment.
