“Arthur found out about the contest when our class went to Rethink Waste for a tour in September,” said his teacher Maggie DeLoach. “We saw lots of other kids’ recycled art on display. Then he acted on his own.”
Arthur created a 3D war tank from recycled cardboard.
“I like WWII stuff and have a special interest in mobilizing armored cars. The tank I built is a very special Class I Tiger Tank that was used by the German army,” said Arthur. “I made it out of cardboard because we just moved [to the Bay Area], and we had lots of leftover boxes in the garage.”
The tank will be on display at Rethink Waste’s Earth Day @ Shoreway event.
“I think it’s cool that I won first place the first year I participated,” said Arthur. “I hope people see [my tank] and think recycling is cool.”
