RUMBA Recycled Art Contest

RUMBA (Re-Used Materials Becoming Art)  is an art contest with a public display and is a fun educational program held annually by Tucson Clean & Beautiful.  The “Recycled Art” competition is free and open to all students in kindergarten through 12th grades. Projects may be submitted individually or as a group. Local dignitaries judge the students’ work and prizes are awarded across a range of categories.

College students, community groups and professional artists are welcome to submit their works for inclusion in the public RUMBA display, however their works will not be judged.  Exhibition of professional art is free of charge, and at the discretion of Tucson Clean & Beautiful. Sales of items materials are not permitted in the display area (as they must be on display for the duration of the RUMBA event), however business cards may be left with the displayed items.

The next RUMBA contest and display is being planned for the SAHBA Home Show at the Tucson Convention Center in Spring 2018. Please stay tuned for registration deadlines and instructions for artwork dropoff in advance of the event.

Call (520) 791-5000 or email recycle@tucsoncleanandbeautiful.org for more information and to be notified when entry forms are available for future contests.
