Recycled Robotics Art Contest winners announced

The Prairie Chic Handcrafts & Antiques staff held our inaugural Recycled Robotics Art Competition on Nov. 15 in our store. We had four contestants enter the competition.

 Meanwhile, David Sabata looks for the next step on his project, which included a recycled bicycle purchased from
 Here, Jameson Davis is shown putting last-minute touches on her entry, who looks similar to a Darth Vader character. "I am Luke's father" reads the sign on the right side of her entry.
 David won $80 as the adult first place winner with his entry named Scrappy.
Jamesson Davis won $20 as the younger youth winner. She is a 5th grader at Herington Elementary School.
Makay Davis won $20 as the older youth winner. She is a 9th grader at Herington High School.

The contest was held to encourage latent artists to think outside the box, and off the canvas, to create an original piece from recycled computer parts. The staff at Prairie Chic will be holding other future artistic competitions. Watch the blog for more details in the future as we schedule more of them!
