What is the UpCycle Art Contest?
This is the second annual UpCycle Art Contest! This art contest is a way for community and campus members to get in touch with their creative side while also using sustainable and/or recycled materials. We know that all things are connected, so why can’t art and sustainability be connected, too?

Can I count the service projects toward my service learning hours?
Most likely yes! Depending on the guidelines set by your professors, you may be able to count these hours towards your service learning service hours. Please contact your professor for verification.

Can I bring my friends/family/loved ones that aren’t apart of the SLCC Community?
Of course, we encourage it! This event is free and open to all community members to participate in.

Do I have to stay the whole time?
Nope, you are free to come and leave as you please. If you are planning on attending the Teach In or the Activism Workshop, please let the presenters know beforehand if you have to sneak out early to get back to class or back to a meeting. We know our students, faculty, staff, and community members are busy but definitely encourage you all to soak up as much knowledge in the time they have available.
